OVERSIZE AND OVERWEIGHT PERMIT LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Types of PermitsOVERSIZE PERMITS: ($10.00 day/trip)
These permits are for vehicles and loads which exceed the legal limitation on length, width, height, or projecting loads.
Exception: Overlength only vehicle combinations, but not mobile homes, which haul loads of the same product all day may make more than one (1) trip per day. However, any change in destination or origin of the vehicle or load would require an additional $10.00 permit. If the vehicle or load is also overwidth or overheight, only one (1) trip per day can be made per permit.
Exception: Mobile Homes which are oversize but not overweight will be issued an Oversize Permit for a consecutive seventy-two (72) hour permit with no extensions.
Note: Oversize equipment which is being used to move an oversize load may use a single Oversize Permit to travel to the point where the commodity is picked up, travel to the load’s destination, and return to the point of origin when empty as long as the entire trip is on the same day and all the highways being used are shown on the permit.
These permits will be issued on regular permit forms or computer generated forms from the Truck Permit Office, the Louisiana Truck Center or by Web application.
