Truck Annual/DOT Inspection

In order to operate a commercial vehicle in North America, the driver must have a CVOR (Commercial Vehicles Operator Registration) and a valid driver’s license, and the truck must pass certain inspections. Sometimes called a “yellow sticker inspection,” the DOT inspection gives a truck driver the go-ahead to operate their vehicle. DOT stands for Department of Transportation and if you do not pass your inspection, you will be barred from driving your truck.

Truck annual inspection: Safety first

In Ontario, you will be asked to undergo periodic inspections if you operate a commercial motor vehicle. The reason for these annual truck inspections is to reduce collisions and ensure that any mechanical defects with the vehicle’s operating systems are caught before they cause a problem. Furthermore, truck inspections improve highway safety across the country and are done annually and semi-annually depending on the nature of the vehicle. Both the annual and semi-annual inspections are required by law and you cannot forgo them. There are also other inspections you will need to undergo that vary from province to province and rig to rig. When you pass your inspection, you are given a sticker; hence the term yellow sticker inspection, that you will need to display prominently on your truck.
