How Do I Protest?

You may request a hearing before the Commercial Motor Vehicle Review Board for modification, cancellation, or revocation of a Commercial Motor Vehicle Citation/Permit penalty. You must provide a written request for a hearing within sixty (60) days from the date of the citation/permit. Your letter should contain sufficient information as well as any additional documentation to enable the Review Board to give adequate consideration to your case. If you would like a variance from the requirement for the advance payment of fines, include that in your request. Payment is not required prior to protesting.

Representation before the board may be made in person or via Microsoft Teams. It is not necessary for you or someone representing you to be present at the Review Board hearing. If you choose not to appear the Review Board will make its decision based on your written explanation. Upon filing a timely and sufficient protest the Review Board will provide notice of the hearing date, time, and location approximately one (1) month prior to the hearing date in a letter sent via U.S. Mail.

You may request a hearing through email, fax, mail, or by using the Hearing Request form below.
