Note: from Rudy Salazar
New 10,000 GVWR vehicles, also known in vehicle code as "J" vehicles (don't trust Rudy or this website read the law yourself), are required to perform every part of the BIT program, but can only be cited for hours of service and logbook violations (California Vehicle Code 2016 page 440 Division 14.8. Safety Regulations 34500 (j)). This could change at any time--beware!

This website explains the California BIT inspection program in eight steps. These eight steps are taught in my free step-by-step video series on this website. In my e-book and paperback book you can also find these lessons along with the forms you will need to help administer your BIT program. The fundamentals in these steps will provide you with a foundation to administer your BIT program, as well as, to present your program to the California Highway Patrol every 6 years, or sooner depending on the severity of your violations within the FMCSA national performance based priority system.
