Operating a heavy vehicle

Heavy tow trucks

The Operation of Heavy Tow Trucks in South Australia Policy (MR1567) (394.4 KB PDF) outlines the various means of towing heavy vehicles in South Australia and details the types of towing operations allowed, mass and dimension limits, and operating requirements and responsibilities.

The policy aligns tow truck operations in South Australia with other states and territories and provides productivity benefits to industry through a reduction in permits required to operate, with the ultimate aim of moving these vehicles from permit to a notice.

Interim permits

Until a notice is developed, operators can apply for a Class 3 Permit to operate Heavy Tow Trucks in South Australia under the new policy via the NHVR Portal.
