The Commissioner of Motor Vehicles has established a program in which carriers may self issue single trip permits governing the operation of cranes across structures including bridges and culverts. The Special Purpose Motor Vehicle In Excess of the Statutory Limits Permit was created to expedite the issuance of crane permits. Vehicles falling into the designated envelopes/categories must adhere to the restrictions outlined for that specific category.
- The Carrier shall act as an agent of the Department of Motor Vehicles for the purpose of self-issuing a crane Single Trip Permit.
- Single Trip is defined as a trip in one direction between two designated points.
To apply for a self-issue crane permit account, send a letter of interest to:
