International Fuel Tax Agreement

Temporary Fuel Use Permits



Our offices will only offer limited services between May 30, 2024 and June 13, 2024 due to the release of new IRP/IFTA software. During this time, we will not be able to renew, replace or issue new registrations.

As a result, we recommend that any credentials set to expire in May, June, or July are renewed as early as possible to minimize impact on your ability to continue operating.

Below are some important dates and activities to be aware of:

  • May 15, 2024 at 7PM EST, will be the cutoff to submit any transactions to E-File and notify for processing.
  • May 29, 2024 at 5PM EST, will be the cutoff for processing any transactions at the Neil Kirkman Building Walk-In Office and the four IRP License Plate Agencies within the state.
    • Any requests received through the mail, emailed to, or dropped off at the Neil Kirkman Building will be held for processing in the order received once the new software is live.
  • June 14, 2024 at 8AM EST, the software will be live and normal office operations will resume.

If you have any questions, please contact our IRP/IFTA Customer Service Center weekdays at (850) 617-3711 from 8:00AM to 4:30PM EST.
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.

Effective October 29, 2021, carriers may purchase Florida fuel use permits online through the FLHSMV Commercial Vehicle Permit Portal. A Florida Temporary Fuel Use Permit is valid for ten (10) days and costs $45.00 each. Carriers may also contact the Bureau of Commercial Vehicle and Driver Services at (850) 617-3711 weekdays from 8-4:30 to obtain a fuel use permit.


For Florida-Based Carriers

Operating in Other Jurisdictions: Florida-based carriers who need to travel in other jurisdictions with an IFTA qualified vehicle that does not currently have a Florida IFTA license nor accompanying decals must obtain a fuel use permit from each of the other jurisdictions in which they plan to travel.
