Beginning January 1, 2015, trucks registered in the long-standing International Registration Plan (IRP) program will be able to travel in all states and Canada without needing trip permits. The cab-cards will show all the jurisdictions. Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) will participate with all states and Canadian provinces in implementing new full reciprocity changes to the IRP.
“This simplification to the IRP registration process facilitates easier movement and more freedom for the carrier,” said Paul Bernander, chief for WisDOT Motor Carrier Services section. “WisDOT is here to support motor carriers and the transportation industry.”
Motor carriers operating interstate will have the first opportunity to renew their IRP registrations under this new rule beginning with their December 2014 registrations. WisDOT mails the renewal registration forms three months before registration expires. Carriers will begin seeing these notifications in October.
Carriers obtaining new registrations through the end of December 2014 will continue to operate under the old rules until their registration expires. After January 1, 2015, all new registrations and renewals will enjoy full reciprocity. Visit www.wisconsindmv.gov and enter ‘full reciprocity’ in the search bar for more information.
WisDOT has prepared other tools to support motor carriers. “International Registration Plan – Full Reciprocity,” is available on the WisDOT YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhJTYFl57AM).
The new mobile app Wisconsin CDL Practice Knowledge Test is available to download free in both Apple and Android formats. Visit www.wisconsindmv.gov. This official .gov site offers free information, including safety information, links to online services, requirements, permits and more.
