    Biennial Inspection Of Terminals – Every two years

    read more
    The Biennial Terminal Inspection Program (BIT Program) emerged in 1988 in California to reduce the increasing number of road accidents in this state. Its main objective is to ensure that each cargo vehicle terminal is examined regularly by the state highway patrol (California Highway Patrol, CHP).

    The reason for such inspections is to confirm that the owners of these cargo vehicles are in compliance with the relevant safety regulations, which require that the units be checked periodically for preventive maintenance purposes.

    Each individual is free to establish their maintenance schedule, the CHP will only determine if it is suitable for the prevention of accidents or mechanical problems and that all driving records are kept in accordance with the law.

    California state law requires that any person or organization that directs the operation of cargo vehicles be enrolled in the BIT Program, in which their terminals will be subject to inspection every 25 months.
