Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 15-302)
Fees for special permits.
The Department with respect to
highways under its jurisdiction shall collect a fee from the applicant for
the issuance of a permit to operate or move a vehicle or combination of
vehicles or load as authorized in Section 15-301. The charge for each
permit shall consist of:
1. a service charge for special handling of a permit
when requested by an applicant;
2. fees for any dimension, axle weight or gross
weight in excess of the maximum size or weight specified in this Chapter; and
3. additional fees for special investigations as in
Section 15-311 and special police escort as in Section 15-312 when required.
With respect to overweight fees, the charge
shall be sufficient to compensate in part for the cost
of the extra wear and tear on the mileage of highways over which the
load is to be moved. With respect to over-dimension permits, the fee
shall be sufficient to compensate in part for the special privilege of
transporting oversize vehicle or vehicle combination and load and to
compensate in part for the economic loss of operators of vehicles in
regular operation due to inconvenience occasioned by the oversize movements.
Fees to be paid by the applicant are to be at the rates specified in this
Chapter. In determining the fees in Section 15-306 and
paragraph (f) of Section 15-307, all weights shall be
to the next highest 1,000 pounds and all distances shall be determined from
the Illinois Official Highway Map.
For repeated moves of like objects which cannot be dismantled or disassembled
and which are monolithically structured for permanent use in the transported
form, the fees specified in Sections 15-305, 15-306 and 15-307 for other
than the first move shall be reduced by $4 provided the objects are to be
moved from the same origin to the same destination, the number of trips
will not be less than 5, the trips will be completed within 30 days, and
all applications are submitted at one time. Round trip permits shall be
the same as a single trip permit except the fee shall be computed
based upon the total distance traveled, and shall be for the same vehicle,
vehicle combination or like load traveling both directions over the same
route, provided a description including make and model of the equipment
being transported is furnished to the Department. Limited continuous operation permits are to be
valid for a period of 90 days or one year, and shall be for the same
combination or like load.
