Ohio IRP Customers

January 1st brought about some changes for IRP customers in Ohio.  IRP is the International Registration Plan, an agreement for the registration of commercial motor vehicles involved in interjurisdictional travel throughout the 48 contiguous United States and 10 provinces in Canada.

The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) now issues multi-year/permanent registrations to those who have a commercial trailer or semi-trailer registered in Ohio.

Multi-year (two to seven years) and permanent (eight years) registrations will allow customers to purchase multi-year commercial trailer and semi-trailer registrations for up to seven consecutive years or pay the equivalent of eight years of registration fees to receive a permanent registration plate (for the life of the trailer, non-transferable). The permanent registrations will receive a plate with the word “permanent” printed between the bolt holes and “No Exp” printed (no expiration) at the bottom right hand corner.

The BMV is also offering the ability to have your company logo on your apportioned license plate.  IRP accounts must be in good standing.  Applications can be requested through the Ohio Commercial Online Registration System or by calling the Vehicle Information Services Operations Section / IRP unit at 614-752-2055

Still have questions? Contact the Ohio BMV at (614) 752-7800 or see
