PrePass allows transponder-equipped commercial vehicles from qualified fleets to bypass designated weigh stations and ports of entry throughout the nation. Pre-cleared vehicles can continue at highway speeds without having to stop. PrePass not only saves fleets time, fuel and money, but it helps create greater efficiencies for shippers and supports improved safety for all highway users.
PrePass is the most reliable and most widely utilized weigh station bypass system in North America, with PrePass-equipped sites across every corridor north to south, east to west and hundreds of places in between.
Through PrePass, over a half million commercial vehicles from qualified fleets are electronically pre-screened for compliance with federal and state safety and credential requirements. This electronic pre-screening allows them to stay on the road and bypass PrePass-equipped inspection facilities at highway speeds. Whether it is saving drivers and companies time, fuel and money at weigh stations, or keeping trucks out of the cash lanes at toll plazas with PrePass Plus, we offer best-in-class solutions for every qualified fleet operation.
Carriers’ PrePass data is confidential. From the beginning, PrePass data has been used only for the purpose of determining compliance with federal and state safety and credential requirements. Learn More

Most tolling agencies also rely on transponder technology, which gives PrePass Plus users the additional benefit of bypassing and paying tolls using just one transponder instead of having multiple devices mounted on the windshield.
For more than 20 years, we’ve continually worked to increase our service areas, helping to make PrePass a valuable solution for more carriers than ever before. By focusing on building strong relationships with our subscribing carriers and state partners, we continue to grow and work toward providing customers with services coast to coast and border to border.
