What You Need To Know About The Emergency IRP And IFTA Deadline Changes

A state-by-state breakdown of every IRP and IFTA registration extension, suspension, and exemption as a result of COVID-19.

Truckers with COVID-19 IRP and IFTA exemptions.

Last week, the FMCSA temporarily suspended HOS rules for truckers hauling essential supplies and providing direct assistance to relief efforts for the Coronavirus.

Now, as more and more people are working from home in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, many government offices like the DMV are shutting down.

So many states have no way of verifying or keeping track of trucking registration like IFTA and IRP and truckers have no way of renewing their licenses.

To ease this tension in the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, many states are waiving or suspending some or all of the registration requirements for IFTA and IRP.

This does not mean that all regulations are null and void, however. Most states have also asked that you carry a copy of a waiver (most of which are linked below) with you while you travel in their borders.

*It is your responsibility to read the full explanation provided by state governments before you attempt any travel.*

Below is a full breakdown of every exemption, extension, and suspension we could find.
