Our team can serve as your on-site representative when your vehicle is involved in a collision. With our experience and understanding of the industry and its accident investigation techniques, we will provide you with a more accurate understanding as to how the accident occurred and what factors were involved.
After you’ve confirmed that everyone is alright, you need to determine what happened, why it happened and how to prevent it from happening again. The key factor in reducing accidents is to understand why it happened. In many cases, people assume the driver is at fault. However, there are other factors to consider such as location, type of load, the other driver and/or vehicle, and weather conditions. Our expertise in the transportation industry allows us to analyze your accident data and design an accident reduction plan for your company.
Accident Trend Analysis
Where are your accidents occurring? Which drivers are involved? What other factors are involved? Our Safety/Risk Management analysis can assist you in identifying the major factors involved in your accidents, many of which can be eliminated through training, customer involvement and driver management.
We know the world of administrative compliance can be frustrating and time consuming. We can tailor our services to assist your compliance needs. We can train your admins on the processes and procedures to be in administrative compliance. If desired, we will maintain your company administrative records to keep you in compliance.
To suit the needs of our client base, we offer sixteen DOT related training courses. These comprehensive courses are built around the same Federal and State DOT training classes that are only offered to DOT Law Enforcement Officers. Our courses are not offered by any other consultants. We will pass on our knowledge so that your company can avoid costly fines and a reduction in your safety rating.

Driver Safety Meetings
If you are not conducting a driver safety meeting on a regular basis or do not have the time to prepare a program, DOT Compliance Consultants can provide this service for you. Our consultants will design specific training programs or safety meetings and present them to your drivers in an accessible, easy to understand format that will help them get the most out of the materials and apply the information they learned in order to become a safer driver.
Expert Witness Testimony
When there is an accident involving a commercial motor vehicle, regulations and industry standards will most likely play a part in any litigation. With the increasing complexity of DOT regulation and the variability of motor carrier operations, having an expert on your side is more important than ever. The other side will often take advantage of this complexity to confuse and distort the facts to their advantage.
Our consultants have the experience and credentials in areas such as, regulatory enforcement, vehicle inspection, fleet operations, hazardous materials, and driver training to provide meaningful insight. We will take the time to understand the underlying issues and then match you with our consultants who are most qualified to support your case. Contact NTCI to gain the expertise to deliver a clear understanding of the facts.
DOT Compliances Consultants, LLC also specializes in Mock Audits. One or more of our three previously Federally Certified State Auditors will travel to you and utilize the same standardized process that State and Federal Auditors use. Our report will demonstrate if action would likely be taken from a State or Federal DOT auditor. We will also take the time to analyze if you are subject to a safety rating reduction. These results are confidential and NOT shared with State and Federal DOT auditors. We are YOUR advocate and will work for YOU.
