Frequent Questions

Some of the most frequently asked questions we hear, along with the answers, are listed here. We hope we cover the information you require most.

Q. Do I have to stop at all ports in the State of Wyoming?

A. You are required to stop anytime you see a regulatory sign (black letters on a white background) instructing you to stop or an officer has directed you to stop. Pre-pass vehicles which receive an in-cab green light may continue, providing they are not hauling livestock or do not have an oversize or overweight load. Example of POE signage:

  • All commercial Vehicles
  • Transport operators
  • Livestock haulers, and
  • Deliveries into Wyoming

*All must stop at the Port of Entry.

Q. Why did that vehicle get the green light and I had to come in?

A. The green light is primarily given to vehicles that we know are properly qualified since they come through the location quite often. The green light may also be used when the port officer is busy with other duties. Always remember if you receive the green light you may proceed providing the vehicle is properly qualified and is legal size & weight.

Q. Why was I chosen for an inspection?

A. Trucks and drivers are chosen for inspection on a random basis. Remember, the more times your log books or vehicles are inspected, and found in order, the better chance your company has to improve their safety rating.

Q. What can I do if I have a good/bad experience at a port of entry?

A. If you have comments (positive or negative) about your contact with and individual or port, please contact the Wyoming Highway Patrol at this email: WHP.Customer.Comments@wyo.gov or simply write a letter  and address it to Wyoming Highway Patrol 5300 Bishop Boulevard Cheyenne, WY 82009-3340
