Do I need IRP?
1. Is your power unit over 26,000 lbs. OR 3-axles or more regardless of weight?
2. Are you travelling to more than one state (travelling INTERstate) with this load?
3. Is your business (or base of operations) physically located in Kentucky?
If you answered, “Yes” to those three questions, you WILL need to register for an IRP account with Kentucky.
If you answered, “Yes” to Questions 1 and 2, but not 3, then you will need to contact your base state.
