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.
