Commercial Vehicle Permits

This site is designed to provide information about rules and obtaining permits for moving extra-legal vehicles and loads through Colorado. Extra Legal Vehicles are those vehicles exceeding size and weight restrictions on Colorado Highways and Interstates.

Truck on Highway

Please Note:

** Chain Law in effect - September 1, 2014 - May 31, 2015.

Commercial vehicles operating on I-70 in either direction between mileposts 133 (Dotsero) and 259 (Morrison) must carry sufficient chains at all times to be in compliance with the Colorado chain law. Colorado Chain Up Tips and CSP TireChain Requirements

 

** Office Closure - The Permit Office will be closed on Monday, October 13, 2014, in observance of Columbus Day. Holiday restrictions.

The office will reopen on Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. and we will process applications in the order in which they were received. Please allow the staff time to process the applications before requesting permit status checks.

 

** CHAPTER 6 SPECIALS - Please allow 2-3 weeks for the Permit Office to process Chapter 6 Special Permits.  Due to a shortage of staff in the Bridge section and an increase in applications, we are requesting that all applications and supporting documentation be submitted well in advance so the applications can be put in the queue to be processed.

 

** DOT numbers are issued by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for Interstate carriers and by the Colorado State Patrol, Motor Carrier Safety for Intrastate carriers.

Interstate carriers may contact the FMCSA at (720) 963-3130.

Colorado based carriers may contact the CSP at (303) 273-1875.

Important Reminder:

  • The Permit Office has a 2-hour turn around time for the issuance of Oversize/Overweight Single Trip permits. We will not guarantee that applications received after 3:00 p.m. (MT) will be processed on the same business day. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received.

Our busiest days of the week are typically Mondays and Fridays. We recommend that applications be submitted early in the day to avoid delays.

 

E-470 Restrictions/Permits

All Extra-legal vehicles must contact E-470 at (303) 537-3700 for travel on E-470. This contact must be made at least 48 hours prior to movement.
