Carriers that are not apportioned through the International Registration Plan (IRP) from their base state are required to purchase a temporary non-reciprocal permit (IRP). There are two permits based on registered weight. If the registered weight is <= 55,000 lbs. the charge is $25.00. If the registered weight is > 55,000 lbs. the charge is $40.00.
Yes, as long as the registered weight and the operation classification allow. For example you may purchase a KYU, IFTA, and IRP > 55,001. You would not be able to purchase an IFTA and KIT on the same combo since IFTA is for interstate carriers and KIT is for intrastate carriers.
The system is designed to accept all major credit cards only. There is a 4% credit card processing fee on all purchase.
