Department of Transportation (DOT) Inspections
The U.S Department of Transportation requires that every commercial vehicle that travels out of state inspected annually by a qualified inspector.
According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation Part 396.17 this includes each vehicle in a combination vehicle. For example, for a tractor semitrailer, full trailer combination, the tractor, semitrailer, and the full trailer (including the converter dolly if so equipped) must each be inspected.
