To establish a CASH BOND, a cashier's check or a certified check must be posted with the Truck Permit Office. To execute the bond, the check amount should be in the minimum amount of $1,000.00 or increments of $1,000.00 to an amount equal to the customer's monthly billing. It is also required that your Federal Identification number be furnished when opening you account.
Customers who fail to pay the full invoice amount of a charge account within thirty (30) days of the billing date may have further privileges revoked and the Department will close you account.
A charge account allows a customer to purchase books of blank permit forms which may be activated as eeded by the permittee. In order to cover printing and handling costs, a book of fifty (50) permit forms is sold for $5.00.
A Control Permit Form (C-Form) can be activated by filling it out completely in ink and then placing a telephone call to the Truck Permit Office. The form is not valid without the Permit Number which is supplied by the DOTD Permit Issuing Official at the time of activation.
The white original sheet of the permit must be carried with the vehicle for which it was issued at all times. The yellow copy must be mailed to the Truck Permit Office within twenty-four (24) hours of the Permit's activation.
For additional information, please feel free to call (225) 377-7146.
