DOT Compliance Consulting

Every month, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) issues harsh fines and even closes businesses - of all sizes - for failure to comply with DOT regulations. Many of these violations can be traced to inadequate or even total lack of compliance with DOT regulations and employee training.

As a DOT audited facility with a substantial fleet and a pool of 400 drivers, Smith & Solomon knows what DOT expects in terms of compliance, and we have developed a variety of programs available to you on a consulting basis to prepare you for a DOT audit.
