Exemption for driving on roads with weight restrictions

If a road subject to a weight limit is to be travelled by a vehicle that exceeds the permitted weight, a request for a special permit must be made beforehand.

Please clarify with a company you may have commissioned whether subcontractors will carry out the transport. Please name the company that owns the vehicle. We point out that the holder of the exemption certificate is liable for any damage incurred.

Due to the extensive checks (e.g. bridge supports etc.) which are necessary for this special permit, we request that the corresponding application be submitted at least 14 days before the start of the journey. Please contact us for further questions.

Here you will find an overview of the weight restricted streets and squares (see link). If the street you are looking for is not included in the list, it may be a street/road that falls within the responsibility of Umweltbetrieb Bremen.

In the case of private road communities, we ask you to contact the chairman of the road directly and obtain a permit there.
