|What if I subscribe and realize I do not need the subscription anymore?||Please call our help desk at 401-831-8099 ext. 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel the subscription. If you haven't used it, we will waive the subscription fee and you will not be charged.|
|What if I'm not sure if I need the subscription? If I sign up, but never use it, will I still be charged the $75 subscription fee?||You can always contact our help desk if you are unsure about applying for the subscription and have additional questions. If you have already applied, but have never used the service, just make sure to contact the help desk to close the account before you are billed for the next year. That way we can waive the original $75 fee.|
|Can I pay for subscriptions by credit card?||No, you must pay either by paper check or by e-check (ACH).|
|When will I get charged the first subscription fee?||The initial $75 annual subscription fee will be billed on your first invoice at the time of sign-up and then once every year when the account is up for renewal.|
|Will we be charged $75 for each service we subscribe to?||No, the $75 annual subscription fee covers all service under one umbrella. However, each service does have a price per transaction. For example, the Interactive Driver's License Record service is $21.00 per transaction. Fee Schedules for all subscriber services are available on the RI.gov Subscriber Portal.|
|To sign up, must I fill out and send in a paper application?||You may sign up for a subscriber account on our subscriber portal by visiting www.ri.gov/subscriber and clicking on the 'New Subscriber' button.|
|How many users does the $75 annual fee cover?||A single subscriber can have up to 10 users, each with a unique username and password. A single subscription costs $75 annually and is applied to your first invoice. If you require more than 10 usernames and passwords, you will need to purchase additional subscriptions.|
|How do I go about updating our subscriber account information (i.e. primary contact info, users, billing, adding a service)?||You may update your account by visiting our subscriber portal and clicking on the 'Update Subscription' button.|

|Do I need a subscription to purchase oversize/overweight permits online?||No, you do not. The subscription is for those who request a high volume of permits and prefer the convenience of receiving a monthly invoice rather than pay-as-you-go.|
|Will I need a username and password for the new system?||
Yes, you will need to create an online account. However, you do not need to complete a subscription application unless you determine that you would benefit from an RI.gov subscription.
Please Note: Those who currently hold a subscription for OSOW Permits may sign in with their current passwords. Those who no longer hold an OSOW Permits subscription may reopen the account or use Pay-As-You-Go option, however, you will need to contact email@example.com to have your credentials reset. If you have never been a subscriber, but have applied for permits in the past, your email address will already be in the system; you will need to click "forgot password" and a link will be emailed to you to reset your password.

|What is the difference between a blanket permit and a non-divisible load permit?||A blanket permit is an annual permit, which covers all of your vehicles and has more stringent restrictions on size, weight, etc. A non-divisible permit is one time, and you can submit whatever you want in terms of route, size, weight, etc.|
