Commercial Vehicle Enforcement and Safety

I'm interested in becoming an officer with the DMV. Where should I begin?

Complete an application for employment with the State of Vermont.  If selected, you would then be required to successfully complete;

  • a background check
  • polygraph test, and
  • entrance exams for the full-time Police Academy

After successfully passing these, and if hired, you must then successfully complete the full time Law Enforcement Academy. 

Drivewyze PreClear

Drivewyze PreClear Weigh Station Bypass Program: Vermont DMV has authorized the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program to operate at some locations. Commercial fleets and owner-operators that register with the Drivewyze PreClear bypass service are eligible to bypass these sites instead of always pulling in, at rates determined by the state of Vermont and based upon safety scores and other prerequisites. Drivewyze PreClear is not a transponder-based bypass system, but runs instead as a GPS based application on smartphones, tablets and select in-cab devices.

Vermont School buses and school vehicles are also subjected to random inspections throughout the school year to further ensure the safe transportation of Vermont’s school students.
 

Weight Enforcement Program

If a truck is overweight who is at fault, the operator or the owner of the vehicle

The defendant on a ticket issued for an overweight violation can be the operator or the carrier. The fines for an overweight violation depend on several factors.  The fines are a set amount per thousand pounds overweight, and vary depending the amount of the overweight. It also depends if the vehicle is operating on a permit, and how many overweight tickets the defendant has been convicted of in the last 12 months.
