Permits & Ports of Entry
Trucks entering Washington are required to have permits at the border and will be placed out of service if they arrive at a Port of Entry without one. Permits are no longer available for sale from the WSP (effective July 1, 2003), so carriers should avoid unnecessary delays by planning ahead.
Truckers entering Washington may obtain needed permits from the Washington Department of Transportation (WSDOT) during business hours (7 a.m. - 5 p.m.) utilizing a telephone and fax machine with the use of a credit or debit card. Also see the Commercial Vehicle Permitting Offices for other approved vendors who sell permits at locations throughout the state. Additionally, WSDOT also has the Online Self-Issue Permits option available on the Internet.
