Oversize/Overweight Permits

Oversize/Overweight Permits

The Class A oversize/overweight permits are issued for vehicle and load combinations that are within specific size and weight limits. The load must be nonreducible. The Class A permit is issued for a single trip, 30 days or annually. Class A permits are issued only for travel on state routes.

Permits for use of other than state routes are procured from the proper local authority. Please see our routing contacts below for more information. For the city of Phoenix, see the Phoenix Street Transportation Department's oversize/overweight load permits.

The following eligibility criteria must be met before issuing a Class A permit:

If a load projects from the side of the vehicle and the load is less than 12 inches deep, the projection must not exceed two feet on either side.

This permit may not be used to routinely transport legal loads on over-width trailers.
