Chapter 314 of the 2003 Acts of Assembly transferred responsibility for the oversize and overweight vehicle registration and permit program from the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The legislation provided that the regulations governing this program promulgated by VDOT shall remain in force until such regulations are amended, modified, or repealed by DMV. VDOT's regulations were contained in the Hauling Permit Manual, filed in the Virginia Administrative Code as 24VAC30-111. DMVs replacement regulations, Hauling Permit Regulation (24VAC20-81) went into effect September 29, 2009. As a result, VDOT can now repeal the Hauling Permit Manual as there is no longer a statutory requirement that VDOT's regulations remain in effect.
