A IRP Trip Permit is required for any vehicle that is operating in oustside their base state with a non-IRP registration. Out-of-state carriers MUST secure a Trip Permit prior to entering any state other than their base state. The Trip Permit must remain with the vehicle at all times while active.
Any vehicle NOT in compliance with the following WILL need a IRP Trip Permit:
- Your truck or tractor is operating within its base state
- The state you are traveling in is listed on your Apportioned Registration CAB card
- Your truck or tractor’s registered weight DOES NOT exceed 26,000 lb.
- Your vehicle DOES NOT have 3 or more axles
- Your vehicle is used only for recreational purposes
- Your vehicle is government-owned
