Frequently Asked Questions

Which permits are required for a vehicle to cross state lines with commercial goods?

Regardless of what you haul, any vehicle above 26,000 pounds in gross combined weight crossing state lines must be registered in the International Registration Plan (IRP) and with the International Fuel Tax Association (IFTA). Additionally, four states, KY, NY, OR, and NM, require vehicles to be registered to pay the weight mileage taxes. These six forms make up the most common permits needed for heavy highway vehicles.

Additional permits may be required depending on what the vehicle is transporting or how it is transported. Common items requiring additional permits include but are not limited to alcohol, Hazmat, and milk. Non-standard methods of transportation requiring other permits can include oversize, overweight, long combination vehicles, and much more.

What are common issues with maintaining a traditional truck book?

Maintaining a truck book can be difficult for any carrier with multiple trucks. The number of documents that must be up-to-date and match the vehicle is staggering. Although most people wouldn’t think it too difficult to keep these records straight, carriers go to great lengths to keep their books in order.

When interacting with roadside enforcement, permit books are often out of order, disorganized, and missing essential documents, which may have been removed at a previous stop. Even in their best condition, truck books are unique to each carrier, presenting an inefficient process for officers.

Common issues for carriers can include:

  • Books get lost as drivers take them in and out of buildings
  • Weather damage or expected wear on paper documents
  • Documents aren’t current
  • Drivers carry a book as they move from truck to truck, causing mismatching records.

Is a digital truck book accepted by state and federal law enforcement?

According to the IFTA Article of Agreement segment R620, since July 1st, 2019, a licensee has the right to produce an electronic image of their license. As well, the IRP Plan Section 600(b) states, “Jurisdictions must accept paper originals, legible paper copies, or legible electronic images, whichever is presented by the Registrant.”

According to a study performed through Allstate, digital insurance cards must legally be accepted by 49 states and in the District of Columbia. New Mexico is the one state that does not require officers to accept digital insurance cards but presenting one will rarely cause an issue. Many states also require officers to accept permits like Oversize and Overweight permits in digital format. Other licenses are at an officer’s discretion.
