TEMPORARY PERMIT OVERVIEW
Temporary fuel & trip permits are available to facilitate transportation through a state for which a carrier does not have the proper fuel or registration credentials. Since these permits are issued for short durations and are quite costly they should only be used when obligations mandate.
  • Temporary Fuel Permits are issued to cover a carriers operation for which they do not have current IFTA credentials or a fuel permit for the intended state of travel.
  • Trip Permits are issued to act as a temporary vehicle registration when traveling into a state for which they are not apportioned or registered. This applies to both IRP apportioned carriers and carriers that are not apportioned due to having mainly intrastate operations.
  • Combo Permits are offered by several states and combine both fuel and trip permits at a reduced fee. If you need both and a specific state offers a "combo", ordering this is less expensive than ordering both separately. Other states only offer a combo and in this case it's and/or a fuel and trip permit.

  • In general, if your vehicle meets or exceeds any of the below listed criteria, you must secure a temporary fuel or trip permit when not permitted or apportioned in the state for which you intend to operate. If you are in doubt please call us @ 1-800-722-8059 before ordering to determine if you must secure any temporary permits to comply.
