The IFTA license is a fuel permit required for all commercial vehicles having a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 lbs. or greater, or vehciles with three (3) or more axles, who travel between states (more than one state). The IFTA license decals will provide blanket coverage for the lower 48 states and Canadian provinces.
Most states require the carrier to establish their IRP (International Registration Plan) and obtain their approportioned plate prior to issuing an IFTA license and decals.
Those carriers who transport 15 or more passengers or transport commodities with a farm plate may obtain IFTA credentials without an IRP plate. All motor carriers who obtain IFTA licenses and decals must meet fuel tax reporting requirements
