The kind of commercial trucking permit that you required to use by the authorities will depend on the size of your truck and also some other factors and this shall be discussed below.
A single trailer permit is a permit that allows a semitrailer to carry a load that is up to 56 feet in length and the duration of operation is between 30 days and one year. The next kind of permits that shall be discussed with the double trailer that allows durable trailers or double trucks to carry loads that I’m not more than 68 feet in length and the duration of operation is the same as the single trailer permit and that is, between 30 days and one year periods. The use of a fixed load permit entails carrying a load that is overweight on a truck, three or four axles, and only allowed for duration that does not exceed 30 days. Another kind of permit is known as a non-divisible load permit that allows a truck driver to carry a load that is non-divisible ill nature and whose dimensions not exceed 14 feet wide, 15 feet high and 125 feet length, with the permits allowing the driver to drive on the highways for 30 day to one year durations.

Because of the speed and nature of trucks, the government does not allow trucks to intermingle with other vehicles which are smaller in size especially in towns because they are able to cause traffic jams which can cause congestion city or town. One thing to note about commercial trucking permits is that they are helpful in keeping the roads in the best that possible because if the track or tracks carry overweight goods, it will mean that the roads are susceptible to damage which is going to cause the maintenance cost of the roads to increase which is not good for the government budget. The use of commercial trucking permits should be advocated for by all states and countries.
