What is the International Registration Plan (IRP) ?
The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a registration reciprocity agreement among states of the United States, the District of Columbia and provinces of Canada to provide payment of license fees on the basis of fleet distance operated in various jurisdictions. Under the provisions of the IRP, motor carriers can operate on an inter-jurisdictional basis in any IRP member jurisdiction, provided they have met all of the regulatory requirements.
What vehicles are required to register under the IRP?
An apportionable/prorated vehicle is defined as any vehicle that is used or intended for use in two or more member jurisdictions and is used for the transportation of persons for-hire or designed, used, or maintained primarily for the transportation of property, and:
- has two axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or
- has three or more axles, regardless of weight, or
- is used in combination, when the gross vehicle weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms).
Once a vehicle meets one or all of these qualifications it must be registered with IRP before being used to conduct inter-jurisdictional trucking operations.
