  • Higher limits are possible in case lightweight chassis / truck is utilised and/or a special permit is obtained.
  • Maximum height is 4.3 metres from the ground to the highest point. (This includes the height of the trailer which is generally 0.7 metres.)

Vehicles over 4.3 metres high are restricted to approved routes because of vertical clearance restrictions on some roads. A maximum of 4.6 metres high applies on approved roads.

  • Maximum width is 2.5 metres. Any oversized loads are restricted to approved routes. Without a special permit, 6 inches either side of the trailer is allowed to be transported.

    Applications for special permits for loads exceeding these limits are generally made through the RTA (Road Traffic Authority).
