OS/OW Vehicle & Load (click on picture to view important links) Welcome to OS/OW Online Permitting!

Our "OverHaul" Online Permitting Web site will streamline your Oversize/Overweight vehicle permitting process. If you are moving a vehicle and/or a non-divisible load on New Hampshire state maintained highways and you exceed the legal requirements, you can now apply for your permits online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Permits will be processed in the order they are received, by date and time requested, Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM EST/EDT, except holidays. Permit Office: (603) 271-2691 Fax: (603) 271-5990. (Phones are shut off at 3:45 pm.) Email:

Please scroll down and read any Important News and Announcements before reading and accepting the terms and conditions and before proceeding to OverHaul to process your permits.

ATTENTION NEW USERS: When proceeding to the "Overhaul Login Page" and clicking on the "NEW USERS START NOW" blue GO button, this is to be used by "INDIVIDUALS" or "COMMERCIAL CARRIERS" only. Permit Service Companies must be approved through another process, and at this time the New Hampshire OS/OW Permit Office is NOT setting up any new services. Also Permit Service Companies may not setup Individual/Company accounts to process permits on their behalf.
