Commercial Vehicle Enforcement

The Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Unit (CVEU) is tasked with enforcing the laws, rules, and regulations for Caddo Parish on all commercial motor vehicles. It is our mission to encourage and promote a safe driving environment by conducting roadside inspections and traffic enforcement on large commercial vehicles.

CVEU Permits

All overweight and oversized loads (including loggers and house movers) are required to obtain a permit. Visit the Commerciale Vehicle Enforcement Unit Website (http://www.caddopermits.org) to find more information on the different permit types that are offered, related costs for all permits, and guidance to help you determine whether or not you are required to obtain a permit for your trip. 

Note: A separate permit must be purchased for each individual truck, commodity, and route, per load.
