A "Special Purpose Vehicle" means a motor vehicle, other than a tow truck or an agricultural vehicle, built for a purpose other than carrying a load, except for water in the case of concrete pumps and fire trucks, as defined in the Road Traffic (Vehicles) Regulations 2014.
As part of the continued effort to reduce "red tape" for the transport industry, Main Roads and the Department of Transport (DoT) have undertaken a review of the SPV licensing and permit application process.
As a result, effective as of 1 February 2016 check weighs will no longer be required when applying for an SPV licence or permit unless requested by Main Roads or the Department of Transport.
Operators will be required to determine the weight of their own vehicle, using any accurate methods available.

This form is for applicants seeking in-principle support from the Department of Transport and Main Roads Western Australia to assist with the import of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).
