As a Pennsylvania apportioned carrier, I understand for auditing purposes, I am required to preserve operational records on which my application
is based for a period of three registration years. I also understand that an acceptable source document used to verify carrier fleet mileage is an
“Individual Vehicle Distance Record” which must contain the trip starting and ending date, trip origin and destination, route or starting and ending
odometer/hubometer reading, total trip miles, miles by each jurisdiction, unit/VIN number, fleet number, trailer number, registrants name and
driver’s signature or name. Unless otherwise indicated, I hereby certify the mileage shown on this schedule represents all intrastate and interstate
mileage (including miles while trip leased to other carriers) traveled by this fleet of vehicles for the designated reporting period. Further, the mileage
shown includes loaded and empty (deadhead and/or bobtail) miles.
C Signature
I/We certify that the vehicle being renewed for account number _______________________ is a motor carrier vehicle and has a valid
safety inspection.
I/We further certify that all information given on this application is TRUE and CORRECT.
Signature of Owner or Authorized Representative
Title of Representative
Due to the Full Reciprocity Plan (FRP), there is no longer a need to segment vehicles by the jurisdiction in
which they travel. If you have an existing apportioned account with multiple fleets, you may merge all of the
fleets into one fleet. If you desire to do so check the “yes” box at the top of the application. It is
recommended to merge the fleet at renewal time. If a merge is requested any time other than at renewal,
apportioned fees shall be assessed again on all vehicles within the new fleet.
Section A – Applicant Information: Complete this section by providing the registrant or business name,
business account TIN/EIN number and registration year.
Section B – Jurisdiction registration Information: List the mileage in the box next to the corresponding
New fleets: Under the FRP, beginning January 1, 2015, all new fleets will have all IRP jurisdictions
displayed on their cab card. Distance for all new accounts will be calculated using the Average per
Vehicle Distance Chart.
Renewing fleets: List the actual distance traveled in each jurisdiction during the previous reporting
period (July 1 through June 30). If actual distance was not accrued in some of the jurisdictions, leave
the jurisdiction mileage box blank.
* - Indicates non-IRP participant; mileage entered for this jurisdiction/country is not used to calculate
apportioned registration fees.
Type of Operation: Check one of the boxes that best identifies your type of operation.
Please read the overview of responsibilities for all Pennsylvania IRP registrants. Fleet vehicle record
keeping is required to be maintained and all fleets are subject to audit. Additional information on the
apportioned registration program including audits is located on the PennDOT’s website at
Section C – Signature: Complete this section by listing the apportioned account number, title of the signee
and date. The signature of the owner or authorized representative certifies the information provided in the
application is true and correct.
