The DOT Auditor is on the lookout for any potential violations. They will build your carrier profile before they even arrive at your office for audit. In that profile, they will compile all public and non-public federal data available regarding your company. There are several reports that they will pull and review to build this profile.

Two of the reports the DOT will review:

  • Red Flag Violations
  • Worst 1%ers

Both reports are federal programs, which means they are non-public, and they are based on road-side inspections. Also, since they aren’t public, there is no real way to prepare for the results of these.

The Red Flag Violations report highlights 16 violations that are considered to be especially harmful or adverse. Some of these violations include: Operating a CDL without a valid license; Driver is using or in possession of drugs; or Operating an OOS vehicle; Driving after being declared OOS.
