There are three divisions within the DOT, the most visible is the highway division which is responsible for acquiring rights, designing highways, and ensuring the maintenance of both primary and interstate highways. The second division is the planning division which works with different modes of transportation. The planning and research part of the division handles and pouts together statistical data for analyzing impacts through finance. The third division is the motor vehicle division and is mainly responsible for licensing commercial and non commercial drivers. The division also regulates restrictions that come with eligibility for obtaining a license and vehicle title.
