Proposed exemption permit fees for abnormal vehicles have been published for comment.
The transport department published the draft fees in Government Gazette 42459.
They were drawn up by the Abnormal Loads Technical Committee in terms of the National Road Traffic Act.
The proposed fees for 2019/2020 are payable for the operation on the public road of an abnormal vehicle and the conveyance of an abnormal load.
Abnormal vehicles require exemption permits to travel on public roads.
Some of the proposed fees include R1000 for basic permit fees (not recoverable, for permits involving engineering input such as route clearance, GCM > 125 000 kg, stability checks and width > 6,0m); R420 for one-month area/period permit fee; R150 for certified permit copy; R920 for minimum escorting fee/vehicle and R110 for copy of TRH 11.
