Permit Processing Times:As a result of the increase in manual routings due to road construction, oversize/overweight (OSW) processing times may be longer than expected. Estimated current processing times are available on the permit application system after login. Learn more about reducing the chances of your permit being delayed or rejected.
Electric Cooperatives:Please establish an OSW permit account prior to July 1 in order to shorten your permit processing time. If you have questions regarding your OSW permit, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Notice: Oversize / Overweight Permit and Bridge Fees Update (August 2018)Read the Updated Information
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:

- 8 feet 6 inches in width
- 60 feet (two-vehicle combination) or 53 feet (semi-tractor-semi-trailer combination) in length

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.
