Overweight and Over sized Vehicles

To Whom It May Concern:

Starting today June 8, 2016, the Rockdale Police Department will be changing the way we process our overweight/oversize permits.  We will be using an online-based permitting system via the website, https://www.oxcartpermits.com.  The older system of processing permits (via fax, telephone, or email) has now been discontinued.

Any company wanting to apply for an overweight/oversize permit in Rockdale will have to use the Oxcart permitting software.  Registration is easy and can be completed on the Oxcart website under the Trucking login/sign up link https://oxcartpermits.com/user/trucking. You also can access a link to Oxcart via https://rockdalepolice.com. Once registered, companies will then be able to reap the benefits of the following via Oxcart:

  • Access a simple to use online interface for requesting local permits
  • Paperless permits downloadable to your computer or any mobile device
  • Eliminate tedious paper processes, faxing and phone calls
  • Speed the process of permit approvals
  • Features an online, interactive mapping solution to assist in route selection
  • Online permit approvals pushed to your email inbox
  • Provide an easy, online payment system (Credit Card Only – see below)

Processing and Credit Card Fees

In addition to the Rockdale permitting fees, Oxcart will require a nominal processing fee for each permit. Oxcart will also assess a credit card fee for each permit processed.  Those charges are as follows:

  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Diner’s Club – 9% of total permitting fee (permit & processing fee combined)
  • Plus a $.30 transaction fee for ALL permits

Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions and/or comments.

Thank you,

Robert J Dykstra Jr

Chief of Police – Rockdale Police Department
