Starting on January 1, 2016, the City of Saskatoon began charging an application fee for trucking and vehicle permits required for excess loads.
The new fees will cover the costs associated with reviewing truck permit applications, which currently comes from the mill rate. The fee is not a guarantee of approval, but purely an application processing fee. This new payment system reflects a “user-pays principle”, common across many other Canadian cities for these types of permits. The fees are as follows:
- Blanket annual vehicle permits = $50
- Daily vehicle permits = $30
As per Bylaw No. 7200, trucks that are over 2.6 metres wide or 4.15 metres tall require an Excess Dimension Permit from the City of Saskatoon to travel within city limits. Non-divisible loads in excess of those outlined in Schedule No. 7 require an Excess Load Permit to travel within city limits.
- An Excess Load Permit is required when a vehicle intends on traveling on city streets while weighing in excess of the maximum vehicle weights prescribed in Schedule No. 7. Excess Load Permits will not be issued for divisible loads. Refer to Section 4 of the Permit Policy.
- An Excess Dimension Permit is required when a vehicle intends on traveling on city streets while exceeding the maximum vehicle dimensions prescribed in the Bylaw. Refer to Section 5 of the Permit Policy.
- For unlicensed construction or farm equipment, refer to Section 3.5 of the Permit Policy
