Electronic Credentials Pilot Program

Volunteers Needed for E-Credentials Pilot Program

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and other states are collaborating on an electronic credentials pilot program. Motor carriers interested in participating in the e-credentials pilot program are needed. The intent of the program is to help do away with a large majority of the paperwork a motor carrier has to have in their truck and to make roadside inspections faster and easier for both law enforcement and drivers.

The credentials eligible for the program include:

  • IRP cab cards
  • Vehicle registration cards
  • IFTA licenses
  • Lease agreements
  • For-hire documents (if the vehicle is for-hire)
  • Hazmat registration certificates
  • Non-hazmat bills of lading

During the pilot program, these credentials can be given to a law enforcement officer in electronic format. Officers may accept or reject the electronic credentials at their own discretion, so participating drivers will be required to have paper copies of all credentials on hand at all times.

During the test period, DMV and the Virginia State Police will allow all motor carriers operating in Virginia to participate in the program. Information can be stored on electronic devices for drivers to present to officers during a roadside inspection in order to obtain as much data as possible.

If your company would like to participate in the e-credentials pilot program, please contact DMV by sending an email to mcsonline@dmv.virginia.gov and providing the following information:

  • Carrier name and address
  • Name, phone, and email of contact person
  • DOT number
  • Fleet size (number of power units)
