Coal Truck Calibration Schedule for 2016

All coal truck calibrations are now performed at a central location near Lebanon, Virginia. The facility is located on Route 19 southbound in Russell County.

Under Virginia Code § 46.2-1143, a truck cannot haul coal at the specified greater weight until it has been calibrated and has a current permit and decal.

To save drivers time, inspections and calibrations are done by appointment only. Only empty trucks will be checked. Permits are valid for one year and will be issued during the appointment.

Please call the following numbers to schedule an appointment: Mike Call at (276) 608-1710 or John Bishop at (276) 228-2705.
