Trip Permits

A Trip Permit is a temporary authority document issued to allow an appropriate vehicle, without an IRP apportioned registration, to travel in a jurisdiction 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 a wire service company, Louisiana State Police- DPS Weight Enforcement Division Port of Entry Scales, and the Office of Motor Vehicles. Please complete the application in advance of purchasing your Permit.
