Ordering an Oversize/Overweight Permit

To order and retain an Oversize/Overweight (OSW) permit in Indiana, you must set up an OSW Transporting Account, order your permits, and follow the general provisions of the permit.

Step 1: Set up an OSW Transporting Account

You must have an Oversize/Overweight Transporting Account set up with Indiana to obtain permits. The Department offers two ways that you can set up an account:

  • Online - Go to Indiana Motor Carrier Applications and select “Apply for OSW Account.” Be sure to have your federal identification number (FEIN), or your Social Security number if you are a sole proprietor and have no FEIN. You must also know your USDOT number (if applicable).

    If you intend to apply for permits online, you must have a user ID and password. After you have established an Indiana account, you can register as a user. Go to Indiana Motor Carrier Applications and select “User Registration.”
  • Mail - Complete Form M-203. If you are a permitting service, you will need Form M-201. You will need to provide your FEIN and USDOT number (if applicable). Once completed, mail to:
    Motor Carrier Services
    Oversize/Overweight Vehicle Permitting
    7811 Milhouse Rd., Suite M
    Indianapolis, IN 46241

Step 2: Order Permits

Once you have an Indiana account created and a user ID and password, you are ready to order your permit. You have two options when ordering permits:

  • Internet - Go to Indiana Motor Carrier Applications and select “Login to OSW.”
  • Mail or Walk In - Complete Form M-233 and mail or bring to:
    Motor Carrier Services
    Oversize/Overweight Vehicle Permitting
    7811 Milhouse Rd, Suite M
    Indianapolis, IN 46241

If you are a permitting service, you must obtain your client’s FEIN and USDOT number to order a permit on their behalf. Permitting Services can only order a permit online.

Step 3: Follow General Provisions

You must follow all the general provisions found on Form M-204 at all times when operating a vehicle with an Indiana Oversize/Overweight Vehicle Permit.
