Contact the IRB for more information on how to obtain a permit. To apply for a Trip Permit through the mail, send the form IRP-4, Trip Permit Application to the IRB 30 days prior to the requested validation date.

If your vehicle has an NYS IRP registration you must get a Trip Permit to operate your vehicle in other IRP jurisdiction and if your IRP registration is not apportioned for that jurisdiction. See the NYS IRP Manual to know the jurisdictions lists (Appendix C - Contact Information) and their permit information (Appendix A - IRP Trip Permits).
If vehicle operated without a Trip Permit which requires a Trip Permit, your vehicle will be charged a full registration fee in that jurisdiction.

Fuel Use Tax Trip Permits
A carrier may fulfill the fuel use tax obligations by obtaining a trip permit for each jurisdiction traveled instead of obtaining an IFTA license and decals. For New York State trips, you may use the New York State fuel use tax trip permit for any vehicle subject to fuel use tax and order a 72-hour trip permit through a service bureau.
New York State charges $25.00 for a trip permit and the service bureau may charge a fee in addition. During a single calendar year, you may not apply for more than ten trip permits.
