Change of course permit applications and escort regulations in Luxemburg

From the 1st of June 2021 new rules will apply for the application of permits in Luxemburg.

From the 1st of June 2021 new rules will apply for the application of permits in Luxemburg. The Luxemburg authorities intend to make Exceptional Transports “Exceptional” again and these modifications should take care of hauliers using this permit whenever they feel the need to and to bypass the rules of the road traffic regulations.

The current permits will remain valid, but new permits will be limited.
You will no longer be able to request for a “permanent” permit with the goal of using it when required. Besides this you will no longer be able to mention your entire fleet on the permit.
A distinction is made here in the type of vehicle and in the case of semi-trailers and trailers whether they have the option of extending. The standard dimensions which you have been used to the last few years will also be dropped.

Below you will find a listing of the required information/documentation that needs to be submitted with your permit application:

  • Mandate from the keeper of the permit, in case it’s different from the applicant
  • Proof of registration of the vehicle(s) 
  • Certificate of Conformity of the vehicle(s) 
  • Proof of indivisibility of the goods to be carried (order form, technical document…) 
  • List of registrations in case the transport needs to be performed by multiple vehicles and the dimensions and masses remain unchanged as compared to the current application
  • For the transport or usage of (a) vehicle(s) of a category 3 permit, a technical drawing that displays the distribution of the masses in loaded condition needs to be submitted


Besides the mentioned modifications for permits, alterations in the field of Escorts are also made. From this moment on you will be required to arrange an Escort vehicle when wider than 3m00 and in certain situations with a length of less than 25m00. For more information about this subject or other questions, please feel free to contact us. We’re glad to be of service!
