Vehicles are restricted by a maximum weight, usually specified on the manufacturer's plate. Both the police and trading standards officers may stop and check vehicle weights. The maximum fine for an overloaded vehicle is £5,000.

To operate a weighbridge you need to apply for a weighbridge operator certificate.
