Welcome to IRP Registration Services!

IRP stands for International Registration Plan. This is the agreement made between the 48 contiguous United States, the District of Columbia and the ten provinces of Canada. The agreement gives commercial drivers the ability to operate throughout various jurisdictions while conducting their commercial carrier business. License fees are paid by the carrier to the home state where the truck is registered and then distributed by the IRP Program to the various jurisdictions in which the commercial vehicles travel.

Per vehicle, IRP tags consisting of one license plate and one cab card are issued. Therefore, implementing this system is much easier than in the past. Prior to the International Registration Plan, truckers had to get separate permits for each area they accrued mileage in outside of their base state.


You know how you pay a fee every year to renew your truck’s registration? That fee goes to your base state to help it maintain its roads, highways, and bridges. Most people don’t leave their base state much, thereby ensuring their fees go to the state whose roads they use.
However, interstate truckers leave their base state all the time! How do states make sure their registration fees go to the right places? With truckers filing for the IRP online with IRP Registration Services!

Registration fees aren’t the only way that states collect fees from drivers. They also collect revenue from taxes on fuel purchases. Fuel taxes from interstate truckers present the same issues as registration fees: how do states ensure that these fees are shared properly?
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is the solution for these taxes. With an IFTA license, a trucker can ensure that their fuel taxes are automatically shared proportionately across jurisdictions.

IRP vs. Trip Permits

Do you only leave your base state once or twice a year? Having an IRP account is a great tool for interstate truckers, but if you mostly operate within your base state, it may not be worth the investment. Instead of buying fully IRP apportioned tags, you should consider getting trip permits on a per-use basis.
For a small flat fee, these permits allow you to legally operate within states other than your own for a short period. The exact cost of these permits will depend on the state that you need a permit for.

What is the IRP?



According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the IRP acts as a powerful tool to discourage out-of-service carriers from unsanctioned operations in North America. Furthermore, fees for the IRP are calculated carefully, depending on the percentage of distance the entire fleet traveled, per every jurisdiction. Registrants start in their base jurisdiction when filing for IRP credentials. The base jurisdiction then collects all the license fees due to Member Jurisdictions, where the registrant will operate. License fees are then distributed monthly.



The International Registration Plan is an agreement across 59 jurisdictions to recognize commercial motor vehicles, that may be registered by other member jurisdictions. These jurisdictions include the 48 contiguous states of the USA, the District of Columbia, and the ten provinces of Canada. When using the Plan, owner-operators can just pay fees based on their distance traveled through member jurisdictions, with an apportioned license plate and a cab card. Together, these identifiers qualify each commercial vehicle for operation through multiple jurisdictions.



Typically, commercial motor vehicles, weighing over 26,000 pounds or using more than two axles are registered under the IRP. But with no plate, most commercial vehicle drivers are incapable of traveling into neighboring jurisdictions without obtaining a temporary registration permit. As a whole, the IRP watches over 2.4 million commercial trucks across all of the contiguous United States. This fortifies the legitimacy of various fleets operating in North America. Trucks and fleets working solely in their base jurisdiction do not need apportioned registration.



It should be made clear that operating interstate is crucial with all materials. When acquiring the proper IRP-Apportioned Registration, please make sure that you have established your business in a Base Jurisdiction (state, province or D.C.) This will be necessary especially when operating one or more commercial vehicles per fleet on an interstate. We have a friendly staff of live representatives excited to guide you through the process of handling your IRP-registration within the jurisdictions of the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia.
