Why Apportioned Plates Are Important
Does your organization currently utilize commercial trucks as part of its fleet management strategy? Do your trucks have apportioned license plates? If you’re not familiar with the term “apportioned license plates,” “apportioned registration” or “International Registration Plan” (IRP), then we hope this brief overview helps explain what they are and why they’re important for your fleet.
License Plate Differences
Apportioned license plates, apportioned registration, and International Registration Plan (IRP) are closely related. These designations allow commercial vehicles to operate in two or more jurisdictions. Each state receives a “portion” of the vehicle’s registration fees based on the miles traveled in that particular state. Apportioned plates are license plates issued to commercial vehicles and are affixed to the vehicle. Apportioned registration is the official registration within the state that the fleet is based. The International Registration Plan (IRP) is a federal program and vehicle registration agreement between the states within the United States and the provinces within Canada.
Worry Free Travel with Apportioned Plates
Having apportioned plates is important because it allows your fleet to travel interstate without having to worry about registering in each state or receiving fines for not having appropriate registration.
