Commercial vehicle weight and dimension permits

Permits needed for commercial vehicles to haul goods when weights and dimensions are more than the regulated amount.


The government monitors, controls and issues permits for the movement of all commercial vehicles, including oversize and overweight vehicles. This helps to ensure safety and minimize inconvenience to the travelling public, as well as reduce damage to roads. Through monitoring and enforcing safety standards, we aim to keep the province's highways safe for all road users.
