Additionally, CVE participates in Kentucky's Drive Smart Program, Seat-Belt and Buckle-Up Challenges, holiday traffic patrols, Child Restraint Education, and other joint programs with agencies Sheriff's Departments, and other police and safety-oriented groups.

CVE focuses on safety on the highways of the Commonwealth with the primary emphasis being commercial traffic: vehicle safety, driver safety, and proper authority and compliance for vehicles operating in commerce.

Career Opportunities

Requirements CVE applicants must complete two years (54 semester hours) from a college or university.

Special Requirements: Must be at least 21 years of age and possess a valid driver's license.

Must maintain a valid driver's license for the length of employment in this class. For additional information please refer to: http://www.lrc.state.ky.us/KRS/015-00/382.PDF

What Do CVE Employees Do

Inspectors staff the weigh facilities, weigh trucks to determine compliance and inspect driver / vehicle records. Inspectors are also responsible for data entry as well as other organizational skills.



What Do CVE Officers Do

Officers patrol Kentucky roadways, operate weigh facilities, and weigh commercial vehicles to determine compliance with legal limits. Another responsibility is the inspection of driver / vehicle records for compliance with licensing, permits, vehicle / driver operation laws and regulations and enforcing state & federal laws. CVE Officers conduct vehicle accident investigations, impound vehicles and make arrests. Additional duties could include gathering & preparing physical evidence for use in court.

Is CVE The Choice for Me

Officer I is the entry level for the Officer path, and promotions can lead to Officer II, Sergeant, Lieutenant, and Captain. Typically, Sergeants and above are supervisory positions; additionally, sergeants act as Regional Trainers.

CVE offers a wide range of job opportunities ranging from inspectors to officer positions. Inspector positions do not automatically lead to an Officer position. There is, however, a career path for both positions. In the Inspector path, promotions can lead to Inspector II and later, to a supervisory.
