Commonly asked fleet compliance questions

Fleet compliance means meeting or surpassing compliance obligations and staying current with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) government rules and regulations. This includes electronic logging device mandate (ELD) compliance, Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR), and Hours of Service (HOS). Fleet compliance affects millions of commercial drivers throughout North America.
Geotab's compliance management solution allows you to meet and maintain DOT compliance. Our compliance solution consists of ELD which ensures compliance for Hours of Service (HOS), Driver Vehicle Inspection Reporting (DVIR), and driver identification. Geotab's electronic logging solution is self-certified and FMCSA registered.
Yes! Strengthen DOT compliance, safety and more. Our DOT compliance solutions can help you meet your regulatory obligations and maintain, or improve, your compliance safety accountability.
In order to maintain DOT compliance, you will need to keep a current copy of FMCSA rules at all times. This includes inspecting all vehicles before and after each trip and keeping track of your findings. You should also begin a routine vehicle maintenance program and keep track of all activities. Ensure all vehicles are marked with their official DOT registration number.
Geotab streamlines fleet compliance with compliance management software. This includes compliance management for ELD, HOS, DVIR and IFTA.
Now. Fleet compliance needs to be constant and ongoing as it pertains to DOT and FMCSA rules and regulations. For example, is Hours of Service (HOS) is one of the more important DOT regulations. The final HOS rule was put in place in December 2011. For the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate, the US regulation went into effect in December 2017. Commercial Motor Vehicle drivers are required to use Electronic logging devices and to track track Hours of service. If you are found in violation of HOS rules or the ELD mandate, you run the risk of negatively impacting your carrier's safety score or being forced out of service.
Fleet operators should look to create robust fleet compliance procedures, which include the following elements:

• Create a fleet safety management programme that includes daily driver vehicle checks and new vehicle safety checks. Streamline this process and support your staff by electronically recording this data to minimise paperwork and administration errors, and enable end-to-end vehicle inspection workflows and defect resolution.
• Develop a predictive maintenance schedule that improves overall fleet uptime, vehicle safety and compliance. Use fleet maintenance software to schedule automated maintenance reminders, approve repair requests in real-time, and have access to an end-to-end record of all defects and how they were resolved.
• Keep a record of your drivers’ training and education needs to ensure that staff are fit and competent to drive.
• Use duty of care fleet compliance solutions to back up your management policies and procedures that protect the health and safety of your employees and the reputation of your company.
• Keep abreast of the development of the cities that are establishing clean air zones (CAZ), low emission zones (LEZ) and ultra-low emission zones (ULEZ), and ensure that the vehicles you operate in these zones comply with their requirements.
