International Registration Plan IRP
The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a federally encouraged program to facilitate commercial vehicle registration and operation among states and Canadian provinces. IRP member jurisdictions collect registration fees from their ‘home based’ interstate trucking companies on behalf of each member jurisdiction in which the companies operate and must register.
What is Apportioned Registration?
Apportioned Registration, under the provisions of the International Registration Plan (IRP), is an optional method of registering commercial vehicles operating interstate.
The IRP was developed by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA), to authorize commercial vehicle registration programs which recognize the unique needs of interstate vehicle operations and promote interstate commerce.
The IRP licensing agreement provides for apportioned registration fee assessment and licensing on behalf of all participating member jurisdictions. Under this agreement, carriers select a single “BASE” jurisdiction. The base jurisdiction processes the registration application, collects the fees and issues the operating indicia.
