Pilot Flying J to offer free ‘mid-trip’ inspections to get drivers ready for Roadcheck


Pilot Flying J has announced that for the next month, they’ll be giving away their ‘mid-trip’ inspection service normally valued at $50 for free.

From now through June 7, drivers will be eligible for a complimentary mid-trip inspection service at participating Pilot Flying J Truck Care Service Centers. These inspections are “heavily focused on checking the tires and brakes of trucks, and also include the inspection of windshields, exhaust, lights and more,” according to Pilot Flying J.

The free inspection service is designed to get drivers ready for the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance’s (CVSA) 72 hour International Roadcheck inspection blitz taking place throughout the U.S., Mexico, and Canada from from June 4 — 6.

“During the 72-hour CVSA Roadcheck event, commercial drivers should be prepared for the CVSA-certified inspectors to put a special emphasis on steering components and suspension systems this year, but should also be prepared for a thorough inspection of their vehicle,” said Dave Latimer, Vice President of Shops Strategy and Operations for Pilot Flying J Truck Care. “From now through June 7, Pilot Flying J Truck Care will be offering free mid-trip inspections in the hope we help more professional drivers pass the checks and get back on the road as quickly as possible. Our goal is to work with our drivers ahead of time to ensure they are provided the preparation tips necessary to meet the check requirements, especially as it relates to steering and suspension.”

To sign up for the free inspection, you can book in person at a participating Pilot Flying J Truck Care Service Center or use the Pilot Flying J app.
