Suffolk County to Require County Divisible Load Overweight Permits
Beginning on May 16, 2016, Suffolk County will begin accepting applications for divisible load overweight permits for movements on Suffolk County roads. Enforcement of the new permit program is anticipated to begin on June 15, 2016. The permit fee will be $10.
Suffolk County had previously required oversize/overweight special hauling permits. Following observations of heavy trucks traveling on county roads, Suffolk County determined a need for a divisible load permit program to ensure trucks only travel on roads that were designed to accommodate heavier weights. Restricted roads and bridges will be communicated with each divisible load permit that is issued.
The permit application is not yet available. Companies that will need a Suffolk County divisible load overweight permit are encouraged to contact Robert Hillman at (631) 852-4100 or Robert.email@example.com
Please note that a NYSDOT issued divisible load overweight permit does not provide authority to travel on county roads. Each county in New York has the ability to enact a county permit program. Anyone currently using a NYSDOT issued divisible load overweight permit who is operating on county roads is encouraged to check with that county to see if they have their own divisible load permit program.
Highway Use Tax Fee Reduction!
As of April 13, 2016, registering a truck for Highway Use Tax (HUT) will now only cost $1.50 per truck.
As part of the recently enacted New York State budget, the $15 HUT Certificate of Registration fee and the $4 HUT decal fee have been eliminated. Those fees have been replaced by a $1.50 per truck administration fee. Please note: Only the fee has changed.
Annual DOT Roadcheck June 7-9
The emphasis this year is tire safety (i.e., measuring the tire tread depth, checking the tire pressure, checking to make sure no items are lodged between dual tires, and examining the overall condition of the tire to ensure no deep cuts or bulges exist in the sidewalls of the tire).
Drivers may be asked to provide the following:
- Medical card
- Hours-of-service documentation (Log Books).
- Drivers will also be checked for seat belt usage and the use of alcohol and/or drugs.
NON-CDL MEDICAL CARD REGULATION
In most cases, operating a Non-CDL vehicle for commercial use, requires a driver to carry a DOT medical card. Find out if your driver is required by using the link below from the NYSDOT!!!!

BUT....WHAT ABOUT THE HUT?
The NYS Highway Use Tax is required for any truck, tractor or other self-propelled vehicle with a gross weight in excess of 18,000lbs. This tax is imposed on motor carriers that operate on NYS public highways (excluding toll-paid portions of the NYS Thruway). The tax is based on mileage traveled and is computed at a rate determined by the weight of the motor vehicle and the method that you choose to report the tax.
The NYS HUT tax return must be filed on a quarterly basis, starting with the calendar year when you began operations in NYS. If your preceding calendar years total highway use tax is more than $4,000.00, you will be reclassified to a monthly filer. If your prior calendar year’s total tax is $250.00 or less, you may request permission to file once a year. The most convenient way to file is online, and the link is as follows:
