  • In the Commercial Vehicle Safety Division, Motor Vehicle Inspectors travel throughout the state inspecting vehicles for compliance with established statutory, regulatory and policy standards and enforcing Title 14 Motor Vehicle Laws. These individuals are accountable for performing a full range of activities pertaining to motor vehicles including inspection, vehicle safety, and licensing.  They must be able to deal effectively with those contacted in their work and be able to explain motor vehicle laws and regulations. 

  • In the Dealers and Repairers Division, Motor Vehicle Inspectors are responsible for licensing dealer and repairer facilities throughout Connecticut.  They also are accountable for investigating consumer complaints and verification of pertinent documentation.
