Virginia Weigh Station & DOT Information

Virginia state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 32

Virginia recently began referring to weigh stations as Motor Carrier Service Centers. That is now their official term for weigh station.

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

The Virginia fuel tax rate is $0.196 per gallon of diesel fuel. Localities that are part of the Northern Virginia Transportation District (or districts that neighbor the included localities) levy a 2% sales tax on fuel.
