What do IRP Plates Cost?
IRP fees depend on a large number of variables, but range from $500 - $1,000 for hot shots and $1,200 - $2,500 for semi-trucks. Due to the differences between the way new IRP plate fees are calculated vs. renewals, fees for plates are never the same year to year.
Typically, IRP registration fees are based on miles traveled in each state and your base jurisdiction’s additional registration fees. This means that every year you renew your IRP the fees will vary depending on where you drove the previous year. For first time IRP filers, the fee calculation is different. Because new carriers do not have actual miles to report yet, each state generates pre-established estimated mileage that is used for new account setups. If you operated under another IRP account prior to setting up a new one, those actual miles need to be provided.
