STGO – What IS That?

The Special Types rules permit “abnormal indivisible loads” to be carried which exceed the weight and/or dimensions contained in the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 and Road Vehicles (Authorised Weight) Regulations 1998. A variety of unusual vehicles such an engineering plant or military vehicles, whose design and function prevent compliance with the Construction and Use Regulations, can be used on public roads in certain circumstances. The rules are contained in s.44 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 and the Motor Vehicles (Authorisation of Special Types) (General) Order of 2003 (“STGO”).
