What is an over axle or over gross weight permit bond?

An over axle or over gross weight permit bond is a type of surety bond that allows the movement of divisible commodities. By posting a Texas over axle and over gross weight tolerance permit bond, principals (permit holders) pledge to make payment to the Texas Department of Transportation and to the counties for any and all damages that may be sustained to any highway. These bonds ensure principals comply with the provisions of Chapter 623.011 of the Transportation Code.

Texas over axle and over gross weight tolerance permit bonds remain in effect indefinitely as long as the permit holder pays their annual premium to renew the bond. The surety can cancel the bond at any time by giving written notice to the Texas Department of Transportation 30 days prior to the proposed cancellation date. The surety remains liable for any claims made against the bond during this 30-day period. This permit bond is an annual permit that expires one year from the “movement to begin” date.
