OVERSIZE AND OVERWEIGHT PERMIT LAWS AND REGULATIONS
Methods of Obtaining PermitsPrepaid oversize permit forms (A-forms) may be purchased for $10.00 each at the Truck Permit Office, the Louisiana Truck Center or by mail. These forms are for customers who do not have a charge account, but wish to purchase forms in advance of their use.
A-forms can only be used for oversize permits and are valid for a single trip if the trip lasts less than one day and for a single day if the trip lasts more than one day.
Exception: Permits for the movement of mobile homes shall be issued for a period of 3 days. If movement of the mobile home is restricted for a holiday falling within the 3 day period, additional day(s) will be added on the permit to reflect the days that movement was restricted.
A-forms are 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 of the permit must be carried at all times in the vehicle for which it was issued.
Blank Prepaid Oversize Permit forms must be activated within twelve (12) months from the date of purchase (as stated on the permit forms).
Facsimile copies of valid oversize PREPAID PERMITS will be acceptable provided the copies are legible and complete. The Department reserves the right to refuse and/or discontinue the acceptance of facsimile copies for technical reasons.
