For vehicles which are not registered under IRP or IFTA, additional permits are required before entering another jurisdiction. Vehicles exceeding limitations on the size and weight also need to obtain a permit.
To operate in a location which is not registered under IRP, a Texas trip permit must be obtained before entering that jurisdiction. The trip permit is a temporary permit issued in lieu of IRP credentials for properly registered vehicles.
If a vehicle is over dimensional (oversize) or overweight, they need to have a permit authorizing movement according to vehicle size and weight.
You must obtain an oversize permit or overweight permit from TxDMV if your vehicle and/or load exceeds Texas legal size and weight limits. Customers may apply for, and self-issue selected single-trip and time-based permits through TxPROS.Read More
Customers may use 72-Hour or 144-Hour temporary registration if the vehicle is not registered or the vehicle is properly registered in an IRP state without Texas listed.Read More
