Texas IFTA License

After completing the IFTA application, a Texas IFTA license will be issued for your entire fleet of vehicles. The annual license is valid from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31. You must place a legible copy of the original license in each of your qualified motor vehicles, as well as in any vehicles you add to your fleet during the license year.

Texas IFTA Decals

After the IFTA license application is processed, two Texas IFTA decals will be issued for each qualified motor vehicle at no cost. Decals should be displayed outside the vehicle, one on each side of the cab.

Texas IFTA Fees

There are no fees associated with IFTA registration, licenses, or decals.

Texas Fuel Trip Permit

A motor carrier that enters Texas with a qualified motor vehicle less than five times in a calendar year can buy a fuel trip permit for each of its entry into Texas instead of obtaining an IFTA license or interstate trucker license.
