agricultural workers will be authorized. This form must be properly completed and signed, certifying that the vehicle meets Department of Labor
requirements. This inspection must be performed by an independent inspection company not afliated with the applicant.

vehicles used to transport migrant and seasonal agricultural workers (except day-haul operations) for distances of seventy ve (75) miles or less.
Vehicles used in day-haul operations and those used to transport workers for more than 75 miles are subject to Department of Transportation
standards. Form WH-514 must be used for inspection of such vehicles.
If the farm labor contractor possesses a valid current state vehicle safety inspection sticker from the jurisdiction in which the vehicle is registered,
the items listed below need not be checked. However, in the Remarks section, the farm labor contractor must identify the state where the
inspection was performed, list the appropriate state vehicle safety inspection number and license tag number and then sign and date the form.
