Oversize Load Permit

An Oversize/Overweight Load Permit is required by the City of Tulsa if an Oklahoma Department of Public Safety Oversize/Overweight Permit is required for any type of movement that traverses city of Tulsa streets. Any vehicle, trailer, object or equipment over 14-feet-high, 14-feet-wide, or 90- feet-long is considered oversize and any vehicle, trailer, object or equipment over 90,000 lbs. is considered overweight on city streets. If your movement meets any one of the four (4) said criteria, complete an online application permit. An OK State Permit is required to review the route and begin the City permitting process. 

Oversize/Overweight Loads are not allowed movement one-half hour after sun down and one-half hour before sun up. No OS/OW load movement is allowed on city of Tulsa streets between the hours of 7 and 9 a.m. or between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Any person, firm, corporation, limited liability company, or other entity applying for an oversize/overweight load permit to traverse City of Tulsa streets shall pay a permit fee as set forth:

Single Oversize/Overweight Load - $73 plus system fees. This fee is nonrefundable. 

Monthly Oversize/Overweight Loads - $220 plus system fees. This fee is nonrefundable.  

Monthly Permit - Multiple movements within the same calendar month must have the same or lesser load dimensions (i.e. height, width, length and weight). This includes having identical axle configurations and spacings (unless 80000 lbs. or less) and using the same city route. This Monthly City permit is only valid if each separate OK State permit is uploaded into the associated City account before each movement during the approved month.

The permitting process may take up to two (2) business days, depending on the load and route. Once the OK State Permit is reviewed, you will receive an approved City of Tulsa permit.
