Don’t agree with a violation recorded on an MVE inspection report?

Inspection violations can be challenged through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s online DataQs system. It allows drivers and motor carriers to request and track a review of federal and state data issued by the FMCSA that you believe to be incomplete or incorrect. The system automatically forwards a Request for Data Review (RDR) to Motor Vehicle Enforcement, where we would have an opportunity to review in-car video, interview the officer, and review the violation itself. Learn more about the DataQs Protocol.
