If I fail at a weigh station, so I have one more chance to get it right before I get a ticket?

I pulled into a weigh station and got ticketed for. Ring over weight. My understanding is that I would be able to try and fix my tandem one time before I got a ticket. The DOT officer said I don't and gave me a ticket.

Second Chances at Weight Station

That depends on the DOT Officer. Also, it depends on how and where you are over weight. For instance if sliding your 5th wheel and tandem will not do the trick mathematically, there is not shifting possible to correct it. It was loaded improperly.
