If you’re looking for the Indiana Raceway Park (aka IRP) Track in Indiana, you’ve come to the wrong place. But if you are a driver/carrier that travels out of state, you will need to know about the International Registration Plan (IRP).
IRP allows a driver to register in its base state (that would be Indiana) and allows for travel to other states and some Canadian provinces that participate in the International Registration Plan, Inc. The IRP allows each state to issue one plate and one cab card credential that lists each state the carrier has paid fees to.

If your type of vehicle is an Indiana base-plated and will run in Indiana only but you plan to operate in another state, then you must purchase a plate from both states or get a trip permit.

Vehicles or combinations having a gross vehicle weight of 7,000; 9,000; 11,000; or less than 16,000 lbs. that do not typically qualify can choose to register for an IRP plate (the starting fee is the same as a 16,000 lbs. plate).
