Revised May 2015


Oklahoma is a member jurisdiction of both the International Registration Plan (IRP) and the International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA).

IRP is an interjurisdictional compact that authorizes apportioned registration of commercial vehicles and provides for the recognition of such registration among participating jurisdictions. The base-plate jurisdiction communicates and transmits apportioned registration fees to other jurisdictions on behalf of its IRP registrants.

IFTA is an interjurisdictional agreement that authorizes fuel tax licensure and reporting, and provides for the recognition of such licenses by participating jurisdictions. The license issuing jurisdiction communicates and transmits fuel tax funds to other jurisdictions on behalf of licensees.

This manual is an information guide to assist in the preparation of applications for apportioned registration, fuel tax licensure, and fuel tax reporting. The information contained in this manual is not a substitute for, nor does it supersede Oklahoma law, Oklahoma Corporation Commission rules, or the requirements of the IRP and IFTA compacts. This manual is not to be utilized as legal authority.

If you have a specific inquiry or concern that is not covered in this manual, please contact the IRP/IFTA section, Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM at the following address or telephone numbers:

The International Registration Plan is a registration reciprocity agreement among its member jurisdictions including the contiguous states of the United States, the District of Columbia, and provinces of Canada. The Plan provides for payment of apportionable fees on the basis of total distance operated in all member jurisdictions. IRP's fundamental principle is to promote and encourage the fullest possible use of the highway system.



Applicant - A person in whose name an application is filed for registration under the Plan.

Application - A filing to the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, pertaining to apportioned registration under the IRP Plan.

Apportionable Vehicle - Any power unit (except as provided below) that is used or intended for use in two or more member jurisdictions and that is used for the transportation of persons for hire or designed, used, or maintained primarily for the transportation of property, and:

Has two (2) axles and a gross vehicle weight or registered gross vehicle weight in excess of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or

Has three (3) or more axles, regardless of weight, or

Is used in combination, when the gross vehicle weight of such combination exceeds 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms).

Note: Fleet vehicles that do not operate in more than one jurisdiction for an entire registration year plus six months, are considered as not intended for use in more than one jurisdiction, and are presumed not apportionable, unless circumstances presented by the registrant overcome such presumption.

Note: IRP ballot 391 removes the exemption for charter bus(es). On January 1, 2016, charter bus(es) will be included in the definition of an apportionable vehicle and be required to display apportioned registration.

Optionally Apportionable Vehicles are:

A truck or truck tractor, or the power unit in a combination of vehicles having a gross weight of 26,000 pounds (11,793.401 kilograms), or less.

Non-Apportionable Vehicles are:

Commercial vehicles used solely within one jurisdiction (intrastate), such as vehicles used for city pick-up and delivery, or displaying restrictive plates that have geographic area, distance or commodity restrictions.

Recreational vehicles used for personal pleasure or travel by an individual or family.

A bus used in the transportation of chartered parties.

Government owned vehicles.

Note: IRP ballot 391 removes the exemption for charter bus(es). On January 1, 2016, charter bus(es) will be included in the definition of an apportionable vehicle and be required to display apportioned registration.

Audit - The examination of a registrant’s records, including source documents, to verify the distances reported in the Registrant’s application for apportioned registration and evaluate the accuracy of the Registrant’s distance-accounting

system for its Fleet. Such an examination may be of multiple Fleets for multiple years.

The applicant or registrant is responsible for providing all documentation required to register vehicle(s) under IRP in Oklahoma. Applications that do not include all the required documentation may be delayed until such documentation is received and may be subject to enforcement.

To operate in multiple jurisdictions, an IRP fleet should register in its base jurisdiction (state or province) as an Established Place of Business. If the fleet does not have an Established Place of Business in any jurisdiction, registration may be sought under the Residency requirements.



To register vehicle(s) with Oklahoma as the base jurisdiction, under the International Registration Plan, the following must be provided:

An IRP application indicating the appropriate applicant and vehicle information.

Proof of an Established place of business or Residency in Oklahoma (see below); and

Documentation to show ownership of vehicle(s) (not previously registered); and

The USDOT number and associated FEI/SSN of the motor carrier(s) responsible for the safety of every vehicle in the fleet. This includes the registrant (if applicable) and any leased-to motor carriers. If the USDOT number of the registrant and carrier responsible for safety are different, both USDOT numbers must be included on the application.

Note: To avoid processing delays please ensure current filing of the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR). For information contact the UCR requirements section at (405) 521-2251 or online at



To operate in multiple states or provinces, an IRP fleet should register in its base

jurisdiction (state or province) as an Established Place of Business. If the fleet does not have an Established Place of Business in ANY jurisdiction, registration may be sought under the Resident requirements.


Applicants or registrants wishing to register vehicles in Oklahoma may do so as long as:

The applicant or registrant has an Established Place of Business in Oklahoma proven by a physical structure with a street number or road location and open during normal business hours. Proof of a physical structure is:

For deletion credit to be given, the cab card and license plate for the deleted vehicle must be returned with the delete application, or an affidavit of destruction must be submitted with the delete application. If the license plate is lost, an affidavit may be submitted in lieu of the plate.

Refunds can not be given for unused fees paid for any deleted vehicle(s).


The Surface Transportation Act of 1982 provides that a state will not register vehicles subject to the Federal Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, without first being presented with proof that the tax has been paid. Effective October 1, 1985, proof of payment (a paid form 2290) of the tax must be furnished at the time application is made to register heavy motor vehicles.

Vehicles subject to the tax include any commercial motor vehicle (power unit) or the power unit combined with a trailer or semi-trailer having a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more.

Complete regulations governing the application of the tax can be obtained from the Internal Revenue Service online at


Oklahoma's IRP system connects through PRISM to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This program aims to identify and prevent the registration of unsafe motor carriers.

PRISM requires the USDOT number and tax ID number (FEI or SSN) be reported for the motor carrier responsible for safety of each vehicle being registered. The IRP account information maintains the DOT & FEIN for all of vehicles operated under the registrant's authority. Vehicles which operate under a safety carrier other than the registrant must have the DOT and FEI reported for each vehicle, including whether or not the safety carrier will be changed during the registration year.



FMCSA's Unified Registration System (URS) rule requires a DOT number's MCS- 150 information to be update biennially. Information on obtaining a DOT number or updating the MCS-150 information on MCMIS (the motor carrier information system) can be found online at:


An applicant must have current liability insurance coverage on all vehicles in the fleet, to be registered under the International Registration Plan in Oklahoma. Applicants who have registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, can use an active motor carrier number as proof of liability insurance.

If the applicant is leased to a motor carrier, a copy of the lease must be included to satisfy Oklahoma's financial responsibility requirements.

If an applicant does not operate under, or lease to a motor carrier with an active DOT #, an Oklahoma Security Verification Form (OSVF) must be submitted. This form serves as proof of insurance and must contain the following information:

Name and address of the insured applicant.

Name and address where security may be verified, if other than the applicant.

Notice that an owner's policy has been issued pursuant to compulsory insurance law.

Year, make, and last four digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN) of each vehicle.

Effective date range the liability policy is in effect.

A warning of the state law requirements that one copy be surrendered at the time of registration and one copy is to be carried in each vehicle.

On blanket coverage of fleet vehicles, the OSVF verification form shall indicate the term "Fleet Coverage". The year, make and vehicle identification number are not required on a fleet OSVF verification form.


VEHICLE CREDENTIALS (Issuance and Identification)

When an application has been processed and the fees have been paid, Oklahoma will issue the following IRP credentials for each vehicle in the apportioned fleet:

A base license plate for the power unit(s) bearing the legend "Apportioned", and

An apportioned registration cab card that indicates registration information including: jurisdictions, weights, Oklahoma IRP account and fleet number, motor carrier information, etc. Cab cards with a registration period beginning on or after January 1, 2015 will include all IRP jurisdictions.

Identification credentials must be maintained or displayed as follows:

The license plate shall be securely attached to the rear of the vehicle, except truck-tractor plates which shall be attached to the front of the vehicle.

The cab card must be available for inspection by the appropriate law enforcement personnel.


If an apportioned license plate is lost, stolen or mutilated, the registrant is required to provide the following to the IRP section:

A notarized Replacement Credentials Application Affidavit for Lost or Stolen Tag(s); and

A $9.00 fee for the replacement tag; and

A photocopy of the current cab card reflecting the lost, stolen or mutilated license plate.

To receive a replacement cab card, a registrant is required to complete a Replacement Application Affidavit Form for the unit(s).


REGISTRANT TYPES (Motor Carrier or Vehicle Owner)

Apportioned registration for a vehicle owner that leases vehicle(s) to a motor carrier may do one of the following:

The vehicle owner (lessor) may register the vehicle(s) in the name of the owner/registrant. The allocation of fees shall be according to the operational records of the owner/registrant. The identification plates and cab cards shall be the property of the registrant (lessor); or

The vehicle(s) may be registered by the motor carrier (lessee), with the allocation of fees according to the records of the motor carrier/registrant (lessee). The identification plates and cab cards will be the property of the motor carrier/registrant (lessee).


The general rule that the lessee is treated as the owner for apportioned registration purposes is subject to the following conditions:

An apportioned registrant may lease its equipment on a short-term basis to another apportioned registrant; however, the lessor is responsible for reporting the distance traveled on the apportioned application.

When completing an amended (add jurisdiction) application for a registration period beginning prior to January 1, 2015 , registrants are required to list all vehicles registered as part of the fleet. Fleet vehicles with a registration period beginning on or after January 1, 2015 will already be registered in all IRP jurisdictions.

Temporary authorization is available for vehicles being added to an existing apportioned fleet based in Oklahoma.

UNLADEN PERMIT (Hunters Permit)

For a registrant who has broken a lease, an unladen permit may be purchased. The permit is valid for forty-five days, including the day of issuance, at a cost of twenty-five dollars ($25.00). The permit qualifies the vehicle at unladen weight that is not in excess of the empty weight of the vehicle or combination of vehicles being registered. The evidence of registration is valid in all jurisdictions.



New fleet vehicles, or vehicles being added to any existing fleet, must have some form of temporary registration in order to operate if permanent IRP credentials have not been issued. All forms of temporary registration are valid for the period shown and will be honored by all IRP jurisdictions when properly completed and validated. Temporary registration or credentials may only be issued to new accounts after all required fees are paid.

Temporary Registration - Vehicles that are eligible for apportioned registration, but are not registered in Oklahoma or do not possess valid Oklahoma credentials, are to obtain temporary registration before proceeding through the State of Oklahoma.

72-Hour Trip Permit - This permit provides temporary Oklahoma registration. It may be obtained directly from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission's IRP section for $12.00, or from a vendor (wire service) that has entered into an agreement with the Commission for distribution and issuance of temporary registration.


Article IX of the International Registration Plan provides for the registration of rental company fleets. Rental fleet registration varies according to the type of fleet involved. Contact Oklahoma's IRP section for assistance.

TAX PAID FUEL PURCHASE (Receipt Documentation and Content)

Receipt Documentation - In order for the licensee to obtain credit for tax paid purchases, a receipt or invoice, a credit card receipt or automated vendor generated invoice or transaction listing must be retained by the licensee showing evidence of such purchases and tax having been paid.

Receipt Content - An acceptable receipt or invoice for tax paid purchases taken as credit must include, but is not limited to, all of the following:

Date of purchase, and

Sellers name and address, and

Number of gallons or liters purchased, and

Fuel type, and

Price per gallon, liter or total amount of sale, and

Unit numbers, and

Purchaser's name (in the case of a lessee / lessor agreement, the receipts will be accepted in either name, provided a legal connection can be made to the reporting party)

In the case of withdrawals from licensee-owned, tax-paid bulk storage, credit may be obtained if all of the following detailed records are maintained:

Date of withdrawal, and

Number of gallons or liters, and

Fuel type, and

Unit number, and

A purchase and inventory record to substantiate that tax was paid on all bulk purchases.



Bulk fuel is normally delivered into fuel storage facilities maintained by the licensee and fuel tax is included on the invoice at the time of the delivery. An acceptable bulk fuel reporting system must account for:

All fuel in inventory at the beginning and ending of a reporting period. Note: The inventory is to be a physical inventory, not a book inventory.

Fuel purchased and delivered into storage during a reporting period. Note: Invoices should be retained to support tax paid receipts.

Total gallons withdrawn for use in qualified motor vehicles and withdrawn for use in other vehicles.

Withdrawal tickets are required to support total gallons withdrawn for use in qualified motor vehicles and must include the following information:

ODate of withdrawal, and

ONumber of gallons or liters withdrawn and dispensed into the qualified motor vehicle, and

OThe qualified motor vehicle unit number.

Withdrawal tickets should also be maintained for fuel withdrawn for other uses.

Note: The deduction allowed for bulk fuel on a quarterly IFTA report is the number of gallons withdrawn from tax paid storage and put into qualified motor vehicles during the report period, rather than, the number of tax paid gallons purchased during the report period.

Example: Acceptable summary or schedule of bulk fuel use for a report period:

Beginning inventory (actual gallons)

Total tax paid receipts

Total beginning inventory and receipts

Gain or loss

Total gallons withdrawn for use in qualified motor vehicle(s)

In most cases when a Licensee/Registrant is selected for audit, the audit will be conducted as a joint IRP/IFTA audit. While the IFTA audit and the IRP audit are separate and distinct audits, some of the records required are the same for both audits.

A Licensee/Registrant selected for audit will be issued a thirty day audit notification letter.

Note: The audit notification letter is required by both agreements.

An auditor will be assigned the IRP/IFTA audit with instructions to contact the licensee/registrant to schedule the audit and make the audit arrangements.

In most cases, IRP/IFTA audits can be conducted on a sampling basis.

The IRP/IFTA audit procedures have been established with the licensee/registrant business realities and needs in mind. The Transportation Division welcomes input from the licensee/registrant in regards to scheduling the audit and audit methodology.
