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.

Using weigh in motion and portable scales, commercial vehicles are screened and weighed to ensure compliance with Vermont’s weight laws.
