Oversize Vehicle: Route Survey & Pilot Video - Audit Regime

Vehicles operating under an Oversize Permit must undertake a route survey before moving the oversize load on the public road network. 

The Oversize Vehicle Route Survey - Audit Regime document provides the minimum requirements for the route survey. 

The Oversize Vehicle Route Survey Template is provided to assist and guide you in undertaking the survey by setting the minimum standard required. 

Pilot vehicles accompanying loads in excess of 4.5 metres in width, must also be fitted with a forward facing video recording device . 

The Oversize Vehicle Pilot Video - Audit Regime document outlines the minimum video recording device requirements, the storage requirements for the video recordings and the associated auditing process.

Bridge Video Supervision (BVS)

Bridge Video Supervision (BVS) conditions are applied to permits when it's been identified that your route requires a bridge crossing. Video supervision of the crossing is required due to the mass of the vehicle combination. The BVS Audit Requirements outline your requirements and responsibilities relating to these conditions. We periodically audit operators who have these conditions applied to their permits. Failure to comply with these conditions may mean that you won't be granted permits to include bridge crossings in the future.

Signage requirements

Requirements for warning signs for your RAV combination are provided to assist with ensuring your compliance while travelling on WA roads.
