(c) A permit issued by the department authorizes the permittee to move or operate upon a state highway a designated vehicle, vehicle combination or load of a size or weight in excess of the legal limitations but within such limitations and under such conditions of operation as may be stipulated in the permit. -The

right to use other highways or to move objects not specified in a permit shall not be implied nor granted and the issuance of a permit does not imply an irrevocable or unrestricted right to the use of state highways.

(d) Although the statutes provide the director with the authority to allow, on state highways, the operation of vehicles exceeding the statutory weight or size limitations, the vesting of that authority shall not be construed by the owners of the vehicles to mean that the right to operate the vehicles is guaranteed under the statutes.
