Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program

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 and 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.

    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?

    Regardless of weight, all trucks must enter Vermont’s weigh stations and inspection areas when open. Vermont participates in the Drivewyze PreClear bypass program. Participating commercial fleets and owner-operators can bypass these sites at rates determined by the Vermont CVE Inspectors.
