The provisions of the Road Traffic Act also prohibit the transport of oversize loads other than indivisible loads in a vehicle. The exception applies to oversize vehicles authorized to move on the basis of a category I permit. An indivisible load is a load that cannot be divided into two or more smaller loads without disproportionately high costs or risk of damage (Article 2, point 35b).
The driver of a non-standard vehicle is obliged to have an appropriate permit with him and to show it to authorized persons.
