BIT Reform Bill 529 Requires Public Display of Carrier Inspection Results
At the end of last year California Highway Patrol (CHP) quietly rolled-out a new Carrier Inspection Results search feature for motor carriers (and the general public). As part of the BIT reform, the CHP was required to provide the public with the outcome of terminal inspections performed in the State of California. This site provides searching parameters to find the carrier that may potentially own or uses a terminal within California. Carriers can be located outside of California, but, terminals must reside within California.
While the link is on the CHP’s website, it is a four step search to actually find it:
Step #1 – CHP Home page is: https://www.chp.ca.gov/
Step #2 – Click on “Programs & Services” in the Home header; https://www.chp.ca.gov/programs-services
Step #3 – Under “Programs” there are 13 logos/images, the 7th one is “Commercial Vehicle Section”
Step #4 – To the right of the page under “Programs & Services”, Commercial Vehicle Section, click on “Carrier Inspection Results”
Of course you can go directly to the last link and use the search parameters provided to research the carrier for which you wish to view inspection results. When results of the search are returned, you may click on the Carrier (CA)/Motor Carrier Permit (MCP) number link and you will be redirected to that carrier’s inspection results.
