Know What the International Registration Plan is.

The International Registration Plan or IRP for short, is an agreement between 48 states of the United States, Washington DC, and 10 provinces of Canada. It helps maintain the highways and byways throughout all the different jurisdictions drivers pass through on their shipments. Before the IRP, drivers and motor carriers had to apply for permits in every state they drove through. Now, there’s only one permit to cover all the jurisdictions.

Who needs to enroll in the IRP?

The IRP is for any driver who crosses state lines into another jurisdiction of the IRP. If your business is solely contained inside the state of South Dakota, then you won’t need to worry about the IRP. However, if you find yourself crossing state or country lines, then you’ll need to enroll in the IRP if your truck falls into any of the following categories.

  • The vehicle has two axles and weighs more than 26,000 pounds
  • The vehicle has three or more axles, no matter the weight
  • Your truck, trailer, and load exceeds 26,000 pounds,

How Soon Can I get my IRP Registration?

As soon as you submit your information, we’ll submit your application to your state’s department. The approval process can take anywhere between 7 and 14 days. As soon as you are approved, we’ll send out your apportioned tags, registration permit, cab card, license plate, and sticker. Shipping for those items is sent through the USPS and can take anywhere from 3-5 days.

What is a Cab Card?

Your South Dakota cab card is a piece of paper with all the information about your vehicle. This has your VIN, year, make, model, gross weight, unladen weight, and more. The cab card is full of useful information, like the jurisdictions you’re allowed to travel through. Every car is jurisdiction-specific based on your home base jurisdiction. This is evidence of your registration for the IRP. If an official asks to see your proof of IRP registration, you will show them your cab card. This means you should always keep it in your vehicle.
