Weights and Dimensions Compliance Guide

The Manitoba Vehicle Weights and Dimensions Guide (PDF, 3.2 MB) is intended to provide a snapshot of current commercial vehicle weights and dimensions as defined by Manitoba Regulation 575/88 (The Vehicle Weights and Dimensions on Classes of Highways Regulation). This document should be used as a guide only. Please visit MR 575/88 for specific controls of vehicle weights and dimensions.

Ministerial Orders may temporarily make a change that modifies what is defined in MR 575/88. A current Ministerial Order which impacts commercial vehicle weights and dimensions is the Wide Based Single Tires Order (PDF, 410 KB).

All current Ministerial Orders can be found on the MIT web site.

If your vehicle falls outside of the specifications in the regulation, you will be required to apply for a permit to operate that vehicle in Manitoba. Please contact the Motor Carrier Permits Office for more detailed information about your specific requirements at 204-945-3961 or (toll free) 1-877-812-0009.
