IRP Electronic Cab Cards
Effective Jan. 1, 2019, IRP cab cards will be available in an electronic image format. All U.S. states and Canadian provinces will be required to accept electronic images of the IRP cab cards. For the first year, you may want to continue carrying your paper credentials.
When stopped by law enforcement, credentials may be shown as an electronic image. Choosing to provide credentials by electronic device may require an officer or official to briefly take possession of the device to verify the validity of the credential.
Regardless of the format, the document must be accurate, accessible and readable by law enforcement. We suggest storing the document as a PDF on an electronic device in each vehicle to ensure access to documentation while in areas with no service or Wi-Fi.
All New IRP/BPR Accounts visiting the Customer Service Center will need to be in the office prior to 2:00 p.m, and all necessary supporting documentation and documents must be completed prior to your visit. Service Providers may visit prior to 12:00p.m. For questions regarding this please contact IRP/BPR at 317-615-7340.
OSW - Change to Permitting Requirements for Fluid Milk Products -- A recent change in federal law declared vehicles carrying fluid milk products to be non-divisible loads. As a result, Indiana is no longer able to issue Overweight Commodity Permits for these vehicles. Vehicles carrying fluid milk products with a GVW greater than 80,000 pounds must obtain standard Overweight Permits for travel in Indiana; all requirements, limitations, permit provisions and permit fees for standard Overweight Permits apply.
Biennial Updates -- Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years. You are required to provide this update every two years even if your company has not changed its information, has ceased interstate operations since the last update, or is no longer in business and you did not notify FMCSA.
