WISCONSIN TRIP PERMITS

If one of your vehicles is traveling interstate through Wisconsin and aren’t registered under the International Registration Plan (IRP), you’ll need to order a temporary trip permit. 

A trip permit is needed if your vehicle is traveling out of state and any of these apply:

  • Your vehicle isn’t registered under IRP
  • Your vehicle has 3 or more axles
  • Your vehicle has a gross vehicle or registered weight over 26,000 lbs.
  • Your tow vehicle and trailer have a combined gross vehicle or registered weight over 26,000 lbs.
  • 72-hour trip permits

Wisconsin’s 72-hour trip permits authorize one round-trip into and out of Wisconsin. For vehicles registered in Iowa, Michigan, and Minnesota, a trip permit is needed beyond the reciprocity zones.

Only applicants wishing to move vehicles into Wisconsin that are not registered in Wisconsin nor enrolled into either IRP or IFTA are eligible for 72-hour trip permits. Applicants who want to move unregistered vehicles within or out of Wisconsin are not eligible. The 72-hour trip permit may not be purchased to authorize movement of unregistered vehicles for trips beginning in Wisconsin.

Exempt “for hire” carriers operating intrastate must have Wisconsin authority and insurance on file prior to obtaining a trip permit.

US Department of Transportation exempt “for hire” carriers must have Wisconsin authority and insurance on file prior to obtaining a trip permit.

Most applicants buy both registration and fuel, but the temporary registration and the in-lieu-of fuel tax portions may be purchased separately. The fee for each part is $30, for a total of $50 if both are purchased.

Payment may be made with a valid credit, debit card or Paypal.

This permit is not accepted in electronic format and must be presented in paper form.  Please print the final permit.
