The Permit Office oversees Oversize and Overweight Permit issuance for Florida on all state maintained highways and roadways. This includes permitting for commercial, public, and private motorists operating on the state system. The type of permits available are annual Blanket permits, annual Vehicle Specific Blanket permits, ten-day Trip permits, and three-month Route Specific Blanket permits (the latter two require a defined route to be submitted with the request).


To minimize exposure to COVID-19 and help protect visitors and employees this building has temporarily been closed to the public by the Department of Management Services. The building will remain closed to the public for the foreseeable future.

During this closure, applications can NOT be submitted in-person. You may call (850) 410-5777 to speak with a Permit Technician who can provide guidance in completing the online application process for oversized/over-weight permits using the Permit Application Sysytem (PAS).

Facilities will remain open and operational to employees only during this time. Normal business hours of operations are Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM and Saturday, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST. Our objective is to take all necessary steps possible to minimize the risk of exposure to our employees and the public therefore, with regret, we have temporarily restricted in-person contact however, our employees are available by telephone during normal business hours by telephone to assist with the application process and to remain committed to the transportation industry during this time.


Over-Weight/Over-Dimensional Permitting

Customers can SELF-ISSUE Trip permits using the Permit Application System (PAS) for loads up to 16 feet wide, 18 feet high, 150 long and 200,000 pounds (140,000 pounds for self-propelled equipment). This means that no interaction with the Permit Office is required. In order to benefit from self-issued permits, the GIS feature in PAS must be used.
