International Registration Plan (IRP)

The International Registration Plan (IRP) is an agreement between the United States and provinces of Canada that enables truck drivers to travel between the two areas with one set of plates. IRP plates are required for vehicles operating in two or more IRP member jurisdictions as well as a combined gross weight of 26,000 pounds or more. This includes the weight of the vehicle and the maximum load OR a power unit with three or more axles, regardless of weight.
