High Productivity Motor vehicles

​In mid-2010 the government passed legislation to allow bigger trucks, known as high productivity motor vehicles (HPMV), to carry heavier loads on our roads.

To operate a HPMV you require a special permit and you are restricted to roads approved as  for these vehicles.

For more information about high productivity motor vehicles go to NZTA website.
