​Year​Number of vehicles issued with P30 licences
​2016​708 (as at 25 May 2016)



The Department for Infrastructure has determined that this information is exempt under Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, as it is estimated that it will take in excess of 12.5 hours to collect the information.


If a vehicle is suspected of being overloaded either through being stopped by the States of Jersey Police or a Driver and Vehicle Standards Traffic Officer, the vehicle is taken under police escort to the nearest available certified weighbridge to be weighed. 

If found to be overloaded, it is unloaded to bring it within weight and the offence is reported.

Exemptions applied

Article 16:  A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed any fee of an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations for the purposes of Article 15.
