Overview | Workshops | Weight Charts & Other Resources | Training Videos & Presentations | County Weight Information

These resources will help you check your knowledge of the most current issues addressed in truck-weight compliance training. They measure knowledge (in comparison to what should be known). Outcomes aren't meant to be a test, rather just a check of where attention is currently focused regarding truck-weight issues and questions.

Minnesota Weight Charts and Tables

These charts/tables are for reference only. All axles and tires must be in compliance to receive maximum legal weights.

Some weights valid only with permit from proper road authority. Check before you haul. Contact the MnDOT Permit Office at 651-296-6000 or ofcvopermits@state.mn.us.

Minnesota Truck Weight Calculator

The Minnesota Truck Weight Calculator provides a convenient way to determine the maximum legal weight that any set of axles on a vehicle/vehicle combination may carry on Minnesota highways. This calculator is demonstrated at the Minnesota Truck-Weight Education Training classes.
