Georgia Weigh Station & DOT Information

Georgia state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 22

Until recently, PrePass users could only get a red light in Georgia. That’s because Georgia was one of a handfull of states whose weigh stations had transponders that used Norpass rather than PrePass. Now most Georgia scales can give the green light to PrePass transponders. That doesn’t mean you’ll get the green light- that still depends on your company’s safety rating with DOT and the weigh station’s random pull-in rate. But if you do get the green light, ride on. You didn’t get away with anything and they won’t be coming after you to pull you over for running the scales.

PrePass trucks that receive a green light in Georgia must still enter an open weigh station if they are pulling an oversize/overweight (even permitted) load.

The Georgia fuel tax rate is $0.282 per gallon of diesel. This rate includes a 4% sales tax. The fuel tax rate varies based on local option sales tax figures that are published every 6 months.
