Inspection Stations

Does a mechanic who inspects school buses need to have a school bus endorsement?

No. DMV policy states "School bus mechanics will be required to possess, at a minimum, a Class B CDL with a "P" (passenger) endorsement to operate an empty school bus." This applies only to inspection of Type I School Buses. For Type II School Buses the inspection mechanic does not need a CDL or a Type II School Bus endorsement.

Automated Vehicle Inspection Program (AVIP)

What Changed with the New AVIP?

Official Inspection Stations and Inspection Mechanics now use a ruggedized tablet computer to guide them through the safety and emissions inspection. The new AVIP uses a wireless Onboard Diagnostic (OBDII) scan tool during emissions inspections to access and record the vehicle's OBDII data and a wireless printer.

Vermont's inspection criteria remains the same for each type of vehicle requiring inspection.
