    You should check to see that your company name in the "Issue To" and "Charge To" fields. The "Issue To" field can be changed, if you are ordering the permit for another company, but the "Charged To" cannot . If you need to change the "Issue To" field, it is critical that new account number be correct. If you have the wrong number or make a mistake when you enter it, the permit will be issued to the wrong customer or rejected because there is no customer with that account number.

    No, you do not have to a charge customer to apply for permits via the Internet. However, if you are not a charge customer, you can purchase permits for oversize only and you must use a Prepaid Oversize ("A") form to apply (NOTE: For more information on using Prepaid Oversize Permits for Internet applications, see the Truck Permits, under memo's web page). Charge customers may use a control ("C") form. However, it’s actually best not to use a form, unless your driver is in the field and does not have access to a fax machine. In those cases, simply apply for your permit through the Web, supplying the number on the form the driver has. When you receive the fax copy of your permit, just give the driver the permit number and issuing official to note on his form. NOTE: It is very important that you also pass along any changes to the permit information that may have been made by the permit office (Ex: route revisions). If you have already filled out the form, these changes should be made on the form itself and the issuing official’s initials noted beside each.
