Oversize and Overweight Vehicles
Jefferson County issues permits for oversize and overweight vehicles.
Any permit issued is for the vehicle or combination of tractor and trailer listed on the permit. No blanket permit for multiple vehicles is available at this time.
Oversize Vehicle Annual Permit: $71 (2019), $72 (2020)
