Commercial Vehicle Inspection Facility

The Commercial Vehicle Inspection CenterThe Commercial Vehicle Inspection Facility (CVIF) is located just off Rockville Pike between the North Drive and the Wilson Drive Employee Entrances. This is a 24/7 post and the main entrance to campus for all commercial vehicles. This post also screens and inspects all types of passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, SUV’s and motorcycle traffic when the Gateway Inspection Center (GIC) and the West Drive Patient Entrance (Patients Only) are closed. 
Upon entering the CVIF facility, vehicles, such as trucks, buses, cars and shuttles, are directed to a specific lane for vehicle screening. This post accommodates all commercial and privately owned vehicles entering the NIH campus.
 Guard screening a commercial vehicle
While vehicles are being inspected, visitors will proceed through the established screening process. After passing screening, visitors will be directed to a Badge Station Clerk to obtain a 1-Day Visitor Pass before returning to their vehicle. Only after passing personal screening and the vehicle inspection process may visitors be allowed to proceed onto campus.
