Transport Permits

Over-Dimensional Load / Wide Load / B-Double Access Permits (Heavy Vehicle National Law)

The Heavy Vehicle National Law (South Australia) Act 2013 (The Act) was asserted in September 2013.  The Act commences on 10 February 2014.

From 10 February 2014, all applications for the movement of vehicles in these categories will be managed by the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NVHR), Australia’s first national, independent Regulator for all vehicles over 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass (GVM) and all fatigue-regulated heavy vehicles over 12 tonnes GVM.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator was created to administer one set of rules for all heavy vehicles under the Heavy Vehicle National Law to improve safety and productivity, minimise compliance burden on the heavy transport industry and reduce the inconsistencies across state and territory borders.

Commencing 10 February 2014, all applications for access permits must be directed to the NHVR as the single point of contact.  Permits previously approved by City of Playford will be honoured by the NHVR until their expiry date.  Applicants will need to contact the NHVR to renew these in the future.

Fees are now applied under the HVNL by the Regulator.  It will be the responsibility of the transport operator to undertake a Route Assessment (at their cost) if one is needed and provide the results to City of Playford and the Regulator.
