- Texas to Increase Self Issue Permitting for OS/OW Loads & Cranes Within Certain Dimensions

The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) will upgrade the Texas Permitting and Routing System (TxPROS) December 11 to improve the overall customer experience by adding several features and increasing the self-issue limit.

TxPROS Customers can now self-issue certain permit types within TxPROS when the overall size and weight of the vehicle and load are within allowed self-issue tolerances. Effective December 11, the self-issue weight limit in TxPROS will increase from the current 199,999 to 254,300 pounds. Overall self-issue dimensions will be:
  • 20 feet wide
  • 18 feet, 11 inches high
  • 125 feet long
  • 254,300 pounds gross weight
In addition, mileage permits for cranes and well servicing units that fall within the dimensions above can be self-issued.

TxPROS customers can now upload required weight certification documents for vehicles/loads that exceed 200,000 pounds gross weight. A permit application missing the weight certification will be held until documentation is received.  For more information on how to upload a weight certification document visit https://youtu.be/JQCUvG9Vm0k or contact the Motor Carrier Division at 1-800-299-1700, options 2-5-2.
