International Registration Plan

The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a reciprocal agreement that authorizes the proportional registration among the jurisdictions (states) of commercial motor vehicles and truckers. This means if a truck is operated in multiple jurisdictions, the owner must annually report mileage driven in each state and taxes are paid proportionately based on the mileage driven. The good news is the owner may pay those taxes in one jurisdiction—referred to as the base jurisdiction or base state.

Vehicle owners are required to register under the International Registration Plan if:

  • Their vehicle is over 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight (GVW);
  • or has three or more axles, regardless of weight;
  • Is a power unit and trailer whose combined GVW is in excess of 26,000 pounds;
  • Your truck is part of a declared fleet that operates in Florida and at least one other IRP jurisdiction
