The California Highway Patrol Donner Pass Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility (C.V.E.F.) proudly serves as a port of entry for the commercial Transportation Industry on the Interstate 80 corridor 5 miles east of the town of Truckee, California. We are operational 24 hours a day, open 7 days a week, making it possible for us to weight more than 50,000 commercial vehicles per month and performing more than 25,000 inspections per year. We are located at 12800 Interstate 80 Truckee, CA 96161 and we can also be reached by telephone at (530) 587-1242 or on Facebook at CHP – Donner Pass C.V.E.F. or also on Twitter at CHPTruckeeScale.
The focus of Donner Pass C.V.E.F. is to maintain a continuing, effective program of regulation and inspection to ensure compliance with provisions of the California Vehicle Code, Title 13 of the California Code of Regulations, Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations, and other statutes and regulations relating to the safe and lawful operation of commercial vehicles on the California highway system. Donner Pass C.V.E.F. contributes to the Departments Commercial Enforcement Program by ensuring the safe and efficient operation of commercial vehicles on the California highway system. This is accomplished through the prevention of traffic collisions and incidents attributed to mechanical defects or excessive driving hours involving commercial vehicles, prevention of incidents during, or as a result of, hazardous materials transportation, and rigorous enforcement of California’s various commercial vehicle safety regulations and driving under the influence laws, by conducting inspections of commercial vehicles.
We ensure the safety of the motoring public by vigilant regulation of specific loads, and minimizing damage to the highway system within the state by continually monitoring and enforcing weight regulations and verifying the validity and accuracy of extralegal load permits.
Finally, we strive to educate both the motor carrier industry and the public in areas that will positively impact and promote greater commercial vehicle safety.
