TxDMV has a program for licensing commercial vehicles engaged in interstate operations. Apportioned registration, also known as the International Registration Plan (IRP), lets you obtain registration credentials in one jurisdiction, giving you the freedom of interstate travel without the inconvenience and expense of purchasing trip permits.
If you operate interstate, you may qualify for apportioned registration. To learn if you qualify, contact your local TxDMV Regional Service Center or send us an email at MCD_TxIRP@TxDMV.gov .
All apportioned accounts are maintained in our online system, TxIRP. If this is your first time to obtain Apportioned registration on your vehicles, please visit your local TxDMV Regional Service Center to set-up your registration account.
Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT)
If the gross vehicle weight of your vehicle is 55,000 pounds or more, Federal law requires that proof of payment of the Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT) be provided at time of vehicle registration.
Electronic Logging Devices
An Electronic Logging Device (ELD) is an electronic device designed to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) criteria to accurately record a driver’s driving time for Hours of Service (HOS) compliance. The International Registration Plan (IRP) and the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) each allow the use of electronic devices to document vehicle distance by jurisdiction provided that the required supporting data is maintained for audit purposes. The purchase of an ELD does not necessarily mean it will be compliant for IFTA and IRP purposes or vice versa. Beware of vendors stating that their systems are IFTA or IRP certified. There is no such certification. See the Electronic Logging Device page on the International Registration Plan, Inc.’s web site to access a chart showing some of the key differences and similarities between an ELD and a compliant IFTA/IRP electronic records device: http://www.irponline.org/default.asp?page=ELD
IRP Compliance Audits
As an apportioned carrier, you are required to maintain detailed operational records in order to renew your apportioned registration each year. Base jurisdictions are required to examine an average of 3% of the number of renewed fleets each year to ensure compliance with the IRP and to guarantee that the proper revenues are being collected for each jurisdiction. As a result, every motor carrier registered with the TxIRP will be subject to a compliance examination of their operational records.
