Customers who need assistance with IRP processing on Friday, September 4, 2009, may visit the Sunshine State Fleet Management office in St. Petersburg.  Customers who have an immediate need for IFTA credentials or if the St. Petersburg office is not a convenient location for them may call the Motor Carrier Services Help Line at (850) 617-3711. 


We would like to encourage customers to skip the trip and take advantage of the department’s electronic filing system for Motor Carrier Services where they may file their IRP renewals and other IRP transactions, renew their IFTA license, file IFTA tax returns, order decals and pay for all via the Internet.  Applications to register for e-filing may be obtained online at
