Expect delays for oversize/overweight permitting in Indiana

August 21, 2019

Fleets and owner-operators are being asked by the Indiana Department of Revenue to allow extra time for oversize/overweight permits to be reviewed and issued.

The department says summer is peak season for both carrier permitting requests and Indiana road construction, causing higher levels of permit volume and complexity.

DOR says most basic permits are issued within three business days. Permits with complex routes or routes that require Indiana Department of Transportation district approval or an Indiana State Police escort will take additional time to process.
