A small number of specialized permit types, such as vehicle exemption permits will continue to be handled directly by the permit office. The provincial permit fee can be paid via credit card (VISA or MasterCard), on account, or via check. TRAVIS Agents are private entities and, therefore, charge a fee for their service separate from the provincial permit fee.

The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association is pleased to publish this Oversize/ Overweight Permit Manual.
Each state analysis includes information in a standardized format: contact, legal limits, special permit limits, general restrictions, types of permits available, fees, escort needs, fines, and restricted travel areas. Telephone numbers, locations, and hours of operation are listed for ports of entry and permit branches. However, readers are always advised to check with the state offices on current laws and procedures. This project could not have been completed without the advice and consultation of many state officials. We thank all of those who provided permit manuals, maps, laws, regulations, and various other forms of documentation.
Legal Notice This SC&RA Oversize/Overweight Permit Manual is intended only to provide concise, easily read information, useful in planning movements of overdimensional and overweight loads. This Permit Manual is not intended to be an accurate summary of all the applicable laws and regulations. Users of the Permit Manual should confirm the information contained herein before dispatching vehicles and loads. The SC&RA cautions Permit Manual users that state laws and regulations are subject to change without notice, and that some time elapses between the effective date of such changes and the amendment of the Permit Manual to reflect those changes. The SC&RA assumes no responsibility for accident, injury, loss or claim, penalties or any other damage resulting from reliance on the contents of this Permit Manual.
Tri-axle trailers which are towed behind either a Tridem or tandem drive truck are legally allowed 24,000 kg when transporting any type of load, except long logs (see appendix “F” table vi of the Commercial Transport Regulations). When a tri-axle trailer is towed behind either a tridem or tandem drive truck hauling long logs they are legally allowed 26,100 kg on the trailer (refer to appendix “I” of the Commercial Transport Regulations).
If the road is restricted to 100 percent of legal axle loading, you are allowed to operate at legal weights as per the Commercial Transport Regulations. However, if the road is restricted to 70 percent of legal axle loading, then the legal axle weight allowed would be 70 percent of legal, for example: tandem axle is allowed 17,000 kg legal with the 70 percent reduction it would be allowed 11,900 kg.
Tridem drive trucks and/or truck-tractors are allowed 7,300 kg on the steer axle without permanently mounted equipment and 9,100 kg with permanently mounted equipment. This information can be found in the steer axle weights section of appendix “B” of the Commercial Transport Regulations.
The maximum legal overall length in British Columbia for bed trucks is 12.50 meters which can be found in appendix “B” of the Commercial Transport Regulations.
Bridge formula is 30 times the wheelbase* in centimeters plus 18,000 kg.
*Wheelbase in the above Bridge Formula calculation refers to the maximum axles span (center of the first axle to the center of the last axle of any axle group) in a heavy commercial vehicle.
The maximum legal overall length of a picker truck-tractor is 12.50 meters as per appendix “B” of the Commercial Transport Regulations. However, under permit the maximum overall length including the front mounted crane is 16 meters as per Bulletin 41, paragraph 7 of the Commercial Transport Procedures manual.
Inter-axle spacing is measured from the centre of the last axle (i.e. tandem axle) to the centre of the first axle in the adjacent group of axles (i.e. tandem axle). The inter-axle spacing is required to determine legal allowable weight and for calculating bridge formula for the group of axles.
