DOT New Entrant Audit
What is a D.O.T. New Entrant Audit?
FMCSA's New Entrant Program monitors motor carriers' compliance with safety regulations for their first 18 months. This website explains the program and requirements to help carriers operate safely on our roads.
The first thing an auditor wants to see is that you have a system in place to keep you in compliance with all DOT regulations. Our simple systems helps you gather all the information you need to successfully pass your New Entrant Safety Audit.
Within one year after you receive your Motor Carrier Authority, the DOT will contact you with a notice to schedule a New Entrant Safety Audit. Don’t ignore this notice, it won’t go away. Call us first so we can start the process of insuring your company is adequately prepared. During the audit the DOT will meet with you to review your safety files and records which can last anywhere from one to four hours.
