Commercial Trucking Permits
This section provides information for the trucking industry about the weight and dimension regulations in Alberta. Legal weights and dimensions are needed to balance the capacity and geometric capabilities of the infrastructure with maximum economic benefits while ensuring road safety.
Legal Weights and Dimensions
Alberta Transportation monitors, controls and issues permits for the movement of oversize and overweight vehicles. This helps to ensure safety and minimize inconvenience to the traveling public, as well as reduce damage to roads.
This section provides registration information for commercial carriers that are based in Alberta and travel out-of-province. Rather than obtaining and paying for plates and registration in each jurisdiction, prorated fees are calculated by the percentage of total distance traveled within each jurisdiction.
