Throughout Vermont, trained officers inspect commercial vehicles and their drivers for compliance with state and federal motor carrier safety regulations. Inspections are conducted at interstate weigh stations as well as along many of the state’s frequently traveled rural roadways.

How do I file a complaint against a motor carrier?
To file a complaint about a motor carrier that is engaging in unsafe operations, you may email the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section. If your complaint necessitates further action, an officer may contact you for additional information.
Do the federal motor carrier safety regulations apply to me?
Do I need a commercial driver's license?
How do I get a USDOT Number?
To get a USDOT number, new applicants must register online via the Unified Registration System. Paper registration forms will no longer be accepted for initial applications, only for updates to existing registrations. Until URS is fully implemented, there is no charge for a USDOT number.
Do I need to stop at Vermont weigh stations?
All trucks regardless of weight are required to enter Vermont’s weigh stations and inspection areas when open. Vermont participates in the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program. Participating commercial fleets and owner-operators are eligible to bypass these sites at rates determined by the Vermont CVE Inspectors.
