Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 22

Tennessee weigh masters say that all trucks must enter weigh stations- including rental trucks on chassis larger than the pickup truck chassis.

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

The Tennessee fuel tax rate is $0.184 per gallon of diesel. This rate includes a $0.004 per gallon environmental assurance fee.
