Coal Truck Calibration Schedule for 2017

To save drivers time, all coal calibrations will be by appointment only. Calibrations will be conducted at DMV’s truck weigh pad, adjacent to Route 19 South in Russell County and about 1.5 miles north of Lebanon. To schedule an appointment, contact Mike Call at (276) 608-1710 or John Bishop at (276) 228-2705. Only empty trucks with valid registrations and credentials will be checked.

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. However, trucks may haul coal at standard legal weights without a valid permit or calibration.

This calibration schedule is subject to change.
