Oversize/Overweight (OSW)

A driver must obtain an oversize and/or overweight vehicle permit before traveling on Indiana roads to ensure the safety of the motoring public if his or her vehicle exceeds:

  • 13 feet 6 inches in height
  • 8 feet 6 inches in width
  • 60 feet (two-vehicle combination) or 53 feet (semi-tractor-semi-trailer combination) in length
  • 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight (subject to axle weights)

The Oversize/Overweight (OSW) unit at Motor Carrier Services (MCS) is here to help make these loads non-divisible and properly marked. OSW provides an online service permitting system that allows drivers to request and receive permits at their convenience.

For more information about OSW, call (317) 615-7320.
