The Village of Palatine requires permits for overweight and oversize vehicles. The permit process is administered by the Palatine Police Department Truck Enforcement Unit. In order for a permit to be issued, the police department requires two documents. First, the trucking company must have a valid certificate of insurance on file listing the Palatine Police Department as a certificate holder. Second, the trucking company must complete an application. After these two items are in possession of the police department, the final permit will be issued and the move can then be made.
The Village of Palatine offers several types of permits, including single trip (5 days), round trip (10 days), quarterly (90 days) and annual permits.
