Ports of Entry - What You Need to Know
In Utah there are eight motor carrier ports of entry. A motor carrier operating a motor vehicle with a weight of 10,001 pounds or more shall stop at a port of entry. Here, a certified port of entry agent may check, inspect, or test drivers, vehicles and vehicle loads for compliance.
The purpose of the inspections is to ensure the large trucks and buses driving on our roadways are operating safely. Inspection procedures and criteria, known as the North American Standard Inspection Program, were created by the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA).
