(WFXR) — The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has published its 2022 Coal Calibration Schedule in an effort to allow customers to plan ahead.
Appointments are needed for inspections and calibrations. According to the DMV, these appointments help save customers time and inspections for trucks can usually be completed in just a few minutes.
Permits will be issued during the appointment and are valid for one year.
Only empty trucks with valid registrations will be checked.
Virginia code does not allow a truck to haul coal without a current permit and decal and at the specified greater weight until it has been calibrated. However, trucks may haul coal at standard legal weights without a calibration or a valid permit.
All calibrations will be at the DMV’s Lebanon Coal Truck Calibration Site located on Route 19 South in Russell County. This is approximately 1.5 miles north of Lebanon in southwestern Virginia.
To schedule an appointment, you can call 276-608-1710 or 540-357-3313. You can also check the 2022 Calibration Schedule on the DMV website for any possible changes throughout the year.
