More Information on the Transition to Indiana's New OSW Permitting System

DOR wants to remind you to apply for new OSW permits in their current system by 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday, February 2. After that, no new OSW permit applications will be accepted until the new Indiana Oversize/Overweight Permitting System goes live the morning of Monday, February 8. You will have until 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, February 4, to pay for and download permits previously applied for in our current system.

Additional Information About Expired Permits and Penalties

  • Carriers with loads under 200,000 lbs. GVW will be allowed to use permits that have expired no more than 14 days prior to travel; however, you must:
    • Use the same vehicle configuration, load and routes specified on your permit and
    • Check for any new road restrictions or closures on your permitted route at before traveling.
  • DOR will not assess a non-payment penalty for permits that are approved but not paid for prior to Thursday’s cutoff time.

Do not forget to have a copy of your OSW permit and M-204 (general provisions) with the driver.
