Intrastate Authority Renewals: Due by December 31st!

The Renewal Season continues! Interstate carriers with their IFTA, IRP, and UCR license renewals aren’t the only ones with December deadlines approaching.

Intrastate carriers are also in the throes of renewal season, with several states requiring that intrastate operating authorities be renewed before the end of December.

(Remember, interstate refers to travel across state lines or internationally, while intrastate travel is within the boundaries of a state only. To see the different requirements for intrastate v. interstate carriers, check out this blog!)

Don’t let the deadline, with it’s fees and penalties, catch you unaware! See below if your state requires you to renew your intrastate authority by December 31st!

Georgia- GIMC Renewal

  • The Georgia Intrastate Motor Carrier (GIMC) license must be renewed annually by the end of December. This license grants you intrastate authority, that is the authority to pick-up and drop-off loads within Georgia state lines only. For interstate authority, an MC#, IRP, UCR, and IFTA license must be obtained instead.
  • Upon renewal, you will need to present current proof of insurance, and if you are a non-citizen, proof of ID and a signed GSICA affidavit must also be presented each year.


  • Private carriers hauling nonhazardous materials do not need to renew. If you’re a licensed hazmat carrier, call TSNAmerica for details on renewing your license!


  • Due by December 31st, your Kansas Interstate Authority cannot be renewed if you don’t have valid insurance on file. You also will not be allowed to renew if your authority is not in good standing. 
  • You may renew by mail (if they mailed you a packet) or online. If you choose to renew online, note that you must have a printer to print your credentials. They will not be mailed to you, unless you have TSNA file for you! We’ll file and send you the credentials ASAP!


  • Paperwork must be mailed back (postmarked by Dec. 31st) with a fee of $25, plus an additional $10 per vehicle you’re renewing. 
  • Kentucky also requires a separate intrastate fuel decal. TSNAmerica can help you renew both your authority and KY INTRA Fuel decals!


  • Your state should’ve sent you the renewal packet back in October. Forms must be completed and either mailed back or walked into the office no later than December 31st. Failure to return or postmark your renewal by then will result in a denial of your request, and your authority will be revoked.


  • Renewal packets were sent out Nov. 1st. Forms must be completed and mailed back with appropriate payment by December 31st. There is a fee of $10 per vehicle you’re renewing. 

Rhode Island

  • Renewals must be mailed back by Dec. 31st with payment for a $100 fee, plus an additional $20 per vehicle. 

In addition to the renewal form and fee payment, most states also require proof of current insurance and that your business be in good standing.
