DOT/FMCSA Audit Support

Whether you’re a new or established trucking company, your business is subject to a DOT/FMCSA audit. Failure to pass your audit could result in costly fines or delays.

Let the professionals at TCS walk you through the audit process so you can stay focused on your business.

The DOT/FMCSA audit support you need to pass.

During the first 18 months of your operations, your operating authority is considered “provisional” and will not be permanent until you have passed an audit.

If your company operates over state lines, you have been entered into the New Entrant Program. You will be expected to either submit paperwork through an online portal or an onsite audit. TCS customers will have a head-start by having many items that will be needed to pass your audit, and we offer the following services to help you pass:

  • Direct communication with the auditor on your behalf
  • Collecting and submitting all required documentation to the auditor
  • Corrective action plans (CAPs)
  • Development of policy and procedure manuals

TCS will help you pass your audit and gain permanent operating authority. We’ll walk you through the difficult process of the initial audit, and we’ll help you get back on track if you’ve failed.

Download our New Entrant Safety Audit checklist to make sure you have everything you’ll need to pass your audit.

Let’s work together to pass your DOT/FMCSA audit.

You made my life easy

Seriously the most efficient service I’ve ever dealt with.

I’ve had nothing but great experiences with TCS.

Everyone I’ve been in contact with have been so helpful and knowledgable. I also want to say that Brittany in the IFTA department was amazing. She was able to answer all my questions and was willing to take the time to dumb things down for me a bit. She’s a rockstar. Highly recommend TCS for all compliance needs!

TCS has been awesome!

Started my transport business this year & I can truly say that if it wasn’t for this company & staff, I wouldn’t have made it through the DOT/MC process with any hair on my head!

If you are stressed to the max and overwhelmed with the whole process of getting your DOT, MC, and LLC taken care of I strongly suggest you go with Transportation Compliance Services! They are thorough, patient, and very detailed and the best part they are not pushy at all! They give you the facts of what is needed and let you decide what services they can help you with…James, Sara, and Ryan have all been a huge help to me and continue to have my back. So if you are wanting to make sure you are in compliance and stay in compliance give Transportation Compliance Services a call…you will not be disappointed!

The awareness to stay ahead of any setbacks would have been overwhelming

I’m a new Owner Operator and getting organized and ready to present myself as a business owner with the awareness to stay ahead of any setbacks would have been overwhelming if the team from TCS had not taken the reigns for me.

I would recommend them to anyone looking for help with DOT issues

TCS handled my issues and walked me through the steps and so forth. I would recommend them to anyone looking for help with DOT issues and so on.

The company is a one stop service for USDOT, LLC, and other legal matters

Transportation Compliance Services is the best because their employees I spoke to (3 of them) knew their jobs flawlessly. I am very impressed. It also tells me that the management is top of the line because the employees are very professional. The company is a one stop service for USDOT, LLC, and other legal matters needed for a business. The best phone call I made, and they got me up and running. Thank you.
