Texas Over Axle & Over Gross Weight Permit and Superheavy Permit Bonds
Texas Over Axle & Over Weight Permit Bond Information
Vehicles and loads exceeding legal size and/or weight limits must secure an oversize/overweight (OS/OW) permit and route from the TxDMV to legally travel on Texas roads. These motor carriers may also be required to file a surety bond with the Texas DMV (TxDMV) in an amount set by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and payable to TxDOT for any damages to the highway because of the operation of the equipment for which a permit is issued. The surety bond may be required when a permit is issued to operate under the provisions of Chapter 623, Transportation Code. The bond is requested for several Texas counties including Chambers, Fort Bend, Harris, and Montgomery.
