IRP Plates – International Registration Plan :
International Registration Plan (IRP) is a method used for registering vehicle fleets that travel to more than one jurisdiction. This includes all states apart from Hawaii and Alaska and 10 Canadian provinces. In order for a motor carrier to qualify for IRP it must register its fleet in its base jurisdiction. For IRP purposes, a fleet is composed of one or more vehicles that that pay registration fee in more than one state. The base collects the fee and distributes it to other states where the motor carrier has requested to travel. The fee is determined by the operation type requested, weight of each vehicle and the distance travelled in each state.
