Safe Trip Planning: DOT Trip Requirements for Commercial Motor Vehicles (SNP-85.2)

Learning objectives

  • Recognize DOT requirements for hours of service and pre-trip inspections

Course overview

Because most freight is intended to reach its destination by a certain date and time, proper planning is necessary. Inclement weather, traffic, road construction, fuel and food stops, and repairs can all affect how quickly a vehicle can travel its intended route. This course will help learners recognize practical and safety considerations for over-the-road travel and long-range trip planning, including DOT inspection and hours of service limitations. This microlearning course addresses a specific aspect of a broader training topic. For a more complete training experience, see DOT-4.2 Safe Trip Planning for Over the Road Drivers.
