    NO 5+ axle permit = €800 fine. If a HGV driver is found in breach of the terms and conditions of the permit scheme, they are liable for the fines for breaching the cordon and these are: Up to €800 for the first offence, €1,500 for the second offence within 12 months and €1,500 and possible imprisonment for the third offence.

    Due to Covid19 staff are working remotely. The HGV help line is not being monitored. Please email for assistance.

    Dublin City Council would like to remind permit applicants that transit permits are ONLY to be applied for when vehicles are carrying dangerous goods that are not permitted in the Dublin Tunnel or for wide load vehicles that cannot be accommodated in the Dublin Tunnel. Transit permits strictly confine vehicles to East Wall Rd and Alfie Byrne Rd ONLY. Vehicles found with a transit permit on other roads inside the HGV cordon area are in breach of the HGV Management strategy which may result in a fine being issued to the driver of the HGV.
