Welcome to the NZTA Heavy Vehicle Permit Portal

New Permit Portal coming in 2024

The NZTA Heavy Vehicle Permit Portal will be replaced in 2024 with a new platform. The new platform will integrate our systems to support the permit application process and develop a single application for all heavy vehicle permits.

The development of the new portal will be undertaken in an agile manner and our first release is expected mid-2024.

You can expect to hear more details throughout the year, in the meantime please continue to use the current permit portal.


To have a single heavy vehicle permit processing system.

By creating a user account you will be able to speed up your application time. You can easily save your company details so that you won’t have to populate them for each application. You will also be able to view the status of your application and edit applications, where you have either got details incorrect or you wish to submit a new application.
