On December 11, the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) upgraded the Texas Permitting and Routing System (TxPROS), which included an increase in the self-issue limit.
The system – TxPROS – allows the self issue of certain permits when the overall size and weight of the load are within specific self-issue limits. The most significant change is the increase in the self issue weight limit from 199,999 to 254,300.
The overall self-issue dimensions now are:
- 20-feet wide
- 18-feet, 11-inches high
- 125-feet long
- 254,300 pounds gross weight
The changes apply to cranes as well. Mileage permits for cranes and well servicing units that fall within the dimensions above can also be self-issued.
The TxPROS system allows for weight certification documents to be uploaded for loads which exceed 200,000 pounds gross weight.
