A non divisible load permit is one that allows a truck driver to carry a load that cannot be divided and that does not exceed 14 feet wide, 15 feet high and 125 feet of length, allowing the driver to carry the load for a duration between 30 days and one year.Another kind of permits is a manufactured housing permit which entails a trailer that does not exceed 75 feet length, 15 feet high and 15 feet wide with the duration being the same as the other trailers.
