Welcome to Pennsylvania IRP Registration

PaTruckTags.com was built to assist you through the registration process. This site should be able to help you through the basic registration process. You should keep in mind that while the basic process may appear fairly simple, our experience has shown us that every registration has it's own unique issues. PaTruckTags.com is here to answer any questions you may have.

Getting Your Information Together

Before you get started, it's always helpful to have as much information together as possible. This checklist will help you know what to expect.

  • Vehicle title
    The title is not necessary if it is already a PA title in your name and you do not need to make any changes. We can assist in requesting the title from your lienholder if the title is necessary for the transaction.
  • Proof of Insurance
    We need to submit proof of insurance for the vehicle you are registering. Bobtail only insurance coverage is not acceptable.
  • Lease Agreement
    We must submit a copy of your lease agreement if you are leased onto a company. The lease must show certain information to be acceptable. Please use the lease addendum for the most efficient and accurate way to provide this information for your registration application.
  • Proof of Address
    You must provide 3 acceptable proofs of address that verify your physical location in Pennsylvania. Copies of these documents must be submitted with your application.
  • Paid 2290 (Heavy Highway Use Tax)
    A copy of a paid 2290 for the current year showing the VIN of the vehicle you are registration must be attached to the application. (exceptions do apply)
  • Employer Identification Number
    You must provide your EIN for the application.
  • DOT number
    Your DOT number is required for the application.
  • Form MV41
    The MV41 must be completed by a PA inspection mechanic qualified to inspect your vehicle. This form must be submitted for any Non Pennsylvania title applications.
  • Registration Fees
    IRP registration expires on May 31. Your registration fees are prorated according to the remaining months including May multiplied by the monthly registration fee for your weight class. These fees must be submitted with your application. Any overage will be held by PennDot as a credit on your account. Any underage will result in a new invoice that must be paid before actual PennDot issued credentials can be recieved.

This is only a summary of some of the information you may need for your transaction.
