International Fuel Tax Agreement
Temporary Fuel Use Permits
Carriers from out of state who are operating an IFTA qualified vehicle in Florida without an IFTA license must purchase a Florida fuel use permit in order to operate in Florida. The out of state carrier must obtain the Florida fuel use permit prior to entering the state of Florida and it must remain with the vehicle while in the state.
Note: The same applies to apportionable vehicles operating with a non-IRP registration issued by another jurisdiction. The out of state carrier must obtain a Florida trip permit in order to operate in Florida. Visit our page in the IRP section more information.
