BMV now offering automated routing, permitting system for oversize loads
AUGUSTA — Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap is announcing the launch of a new online permitting system for overlimit permits.
Effective Monday, Feb. 11, 2019, the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles’ Motor Carrier Services Overlimit Permit Unit will be converting to a modernized, web-based automated routing and permitting system.
The new system is called MoveME (Move Oversized Vehicles Efficiently Maine) and will have 24-hour/7-day availability for carriers, alleviating the need to wait for BMV office hours to obtain a permit. Apart from loads that are considered “extreme” or instances in which special provisions are necessary, an applicant can apply for, pay and print or download the permit and approved route directly through the online service.
MoveME uses data from the Maine Department of Transportation and Maine Turnpike Authority to create safe and efficient routes for oversize loads. The online service is hosted by ProMiles and is available at www.MoveMEMaine.com.
For applicants who would rather not utilize MoveME, the Overlimit Permit Unit will continue to accept applications via fax, mail, e-mail, and in person. The unit is located at the BMV central office, 101 Hospital Street in Augusta. Staff are available by phone at 207-624-9000 Ext. 52134; via fax at 207-622-5332; or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
