What is a trip permit?

A trip permit is a temporary authority document issued to allow an apportionable vehicle without an IRP apportioned registration to travel in a jurisdiction in without obtaining an IRP plate. A carrier should secure a trip permit prior to entering a jurisdiction for which they are not apportioned. Trip permits for travel in Louisiana are valid for 48 hours at a cost of $50.00 and can be obtained through one of the wire service companies, Louisiana State Police - DPS Weight Enforcement Division Port of Entry Scales, and Office of Motor Vehicles.
