American Alliance Authority & Compliance is one of the very few third-party authority service providers that can offer you access to discounted scale-bypass service provided by HELP, Inc. subsidiary PrePass.
PrePass is an advanced Automated Vehicle Identification (AVI) technology that enables qualified motor carriers to electronically comply with state safety, weight, and credential requirements while traveling down the road at highway speed. This enables them to “bypass” PrePass equipped weigh stations.
The PrePass system employs proven transponder technology that guarantees correct signaling and reliability. In addition, it can be installed to work in tandem with existing infrastructure, maximizing the value of a state’s investment deployed technologies.
To access our discounted program you MUST BE a client of either American Alliance Authority & Compliance or enrolled with American Alliance Drug Testing for DOT drug and alcohol testing services.
NOTE: Currently we do not offer access to PrePass – Plus.
