NHVR to process all heavy vehicle access permits from 4 December 2017

National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) have been working collaboratively for the return of heavy vehicle access permit processing to the NHVR.

DPTI currently process intrastate Class 1 heavy vehicle access permit applications and will transition this function to the NHVR on the 4 December 2017.

NHVR will then process all heavy vehicle access permit applications (oversize/over mass, agricultural vehicles and special purpose vehicles) that were previously processed by DPTI for travel within South Australia.

To apply for an access permit on or after 4 December 2017, operators need to lodge applications with the NHVR using the NHVR Portal. To access the NHVR Portal, log on to –
