The International Registration Plan (Plan) is an agreement among of the United States, the District of Columbia and provinces of Canada which recognizes the registration of commercial motor vehicles issued by other jurisdictions. Motor carriers register with and pay to one (base) jurisdiction. The fee is based on the percentage of distance traveled in each jurisdiction according to that jurisdiction’s fee schedule; these fees are then distributed to the relevant jurisdictions. Registered motor carriers receive apportioned plates and are able to travel through all IRP member jurisdictions. Commercial motor vehicles either alone or used in combination weighing more than 26,000 pounds (11,794 kilograms), and traveling in two or more jurisdictions, are likely registered under IRP.
Apportionable vehicles must be registered under IRP. The Plan defines an apportionable vehicle as: any vehicle that is used or intended for use in two or more member jurisdictions and that is used for the transportation of persons for hire or designed, used, or maintained primarily for the transportation of property, and:
(i) has two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or
(ii) has three or more axles, regardless of weight, or
(iii) is used in combination, when the gross vehicle weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms).
Exceptions: Recreational vehicles, vehicles displaying restricted plates, or government-owned vehicles.
Optional: Trucks or truck tractors, or combinations of vehicles having a gross vehicle weight of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or less can be registered under the IRP plan.
Semi trailers do not have to be be registered under the IRP plan.
The base jurisdiction for IFTA and IRP does not need to be the same, which means you can have IFTA in one state and IRP registration from another state.
