What is a BIT Inspection?
Established in 1988, the Biennial (now Basic) Inspection of Terminals (BIT) Inspection was created with a singular goal in mind: to reduce the amount of truck-related accidents that occur in California’s highways. Required every 90 days or six years, trucks must visit a state-approved terminal to ensure the vehicle is safe for operation. If the inspection isn’t performed within either time frame, the driver is susceptible to fines from the state. How do you know which time frame to follow? Well, if your vehicle exceeds a gross weight of 26,000 lbs or has three or more axles, you must have it inspected every 90 days. Otherwise, you’re able to follow the six years time frame.
So, how exactly can you prepare for the BIT inspection and ensure you pass? Well, make sure you’re taking detailed records of your truck's hours of service, driver logbooks, and all previous inspections, as we utilize this information during your inspection. Also, make sure you inspect your truck’s maintenance records and, if anything looks out-of-date, have it serviced by one of our professionals. Using our knowledge of the inspection, we can perform the necessary repairs so you never have to deal with the problems that would arise if you were to fail it. By keeping your records up-to-date and routinely checking them, you’ll be able to pass the BIT inspection and leave the California Highway Patrol satisfied.
