RITA - Frequently Asked Questions

Will I wait in queue just as I would if I called in?

RITA eliminates the "Hold Time" of calling in, therefore eliminating the need to wait in queue.

Can I use a previous permit application to create a new one?

Yes, RITA has a powerful search engine to allow you to search previous applications by unit number and / or date to simplify finding your previous application.

What if I am not working for an Oil Company?

When you apply for your permit, you have the option to indicate that there is "No Oil Company".

I have multiple loads going to one location; do I apply separately for each load?

If I am interrupted part way through my application, can I save it?

Do I need to enter my unit information for each application?

No, the system keeps your unit information “on file” so it automatically fills in the required data when you select the unit. If you have a “default unit” set with your log in, that information is selected for each permit when you start the application. This saves time on every application.

Does the system have a map I can view?

Yes, once you have entered an origin or destination you can open a detailed interactive map that will show restrictions, restricted bridges, road bans, construction and areas to avoid.

Can I print a map?

What information can I see related to my units?

Roadata tracks information such as annual permits, weights, dimensions and specifications for most units. You can view ALL the units we have in our system and even print off a Specification sheet for them if you want. You can produce a listing of all units and you can even apply for Registry services such as requesting a duplicate copy of your registration.

How long will it take to receive my approval to move?

This will depend on a number of variables such as the Municipalities you are moving in, the type of permit, what time of day you apply etc. Our Permit Specialist will obtain your approval as fast as possible.
