Who Needs an Oversize Load Permit?

If a commercial vehicle is oversize or overweight, a temporary oversize load permit (also known as a truck permit or wide load permit) is needed for it to legally travel.  

In most cases a load is considered an oversize load, or an oversize/overweight load and requires a state or county oversize load permit when:

  • The load’s height exceeds 13’6″
  • The load’s width exceeds 8’6″
  • The load’s length exceeds 48′
  • The load’s weight exceeds 80,000 pounds
