Oversize or overmass vehicles
Vehicles that are oversize due to loads or equipment must comply with load restraint performance standards.
Read the v64 load restraint information bulletin .
Permits will generally have conditions of operation on the vehicle. For example, route restrictions.
In the NT, you need a permit for all of the following:
- a special purpose vehicle that, by construction, exceeds the legal mass and/or dimension limits – eg cranes, drill rigs, plant-type vehicles
- low loaders and load platforms that are specially designed for the carriage of a large inseparable item or are carrying a large inseparable item
- vehicles and combinations that transport inseparable loads
- agricultural machines, agricultural implements or agricultural combinations.
You can also apply or renew to be an oversize load pilot or escort operator.
