An Overview of Wyoming Trucking Permits
If you plan on venturing through Wyoming for just one trip, you will need to obtain a trip permit. This type of permit allows for single trips through the state without having to register and pay taxes. There are two types of trip permits available in Wyoming - 72-hour and 144-hour permits. The 72-hour permit is valid for 3 consecutive days while the 144-hour permit is valid for 6 consecutive days. Both require an application fee as well as an additional fee per mile traveled within the state of Wyoming.
In addition to obtaining a trip permit, all truckers who drive through Wyoming must also pay a weight distance tax if they weigh more than 26,000 pounds or have three or more axles (or both). This tax is based on how many miles were driven within the state, so it’s important to keep track of your mileage while driving in Wyoming. To help with this process, it’s also recommended that all drivers carry proof of payment when operating their vehicles in case they are stopped by law enforcement.
The International Fuel Tax Agreement (IFTA) is a licensing agreement between all states and Canadian provinces that require interstate motor carriers to report their fuel use within participating jurisdictions. While IFTA isn't required in every state, it is required if you plan on traveling through multiple states during your journey and/or if your vehicle weighs 26,000 pounds or more (or has three axles or more) regardless of whether you travel interstate or intrastate. If your vehicle meets these requirements and travels through any combination of IFTA member states/provinces then you will need an IFTA license issued by Wisconsin prior to embarking on your journey through those areas.
What Permits Are Required for Wyoming?
Wyoming is one of many states that require commercial trucking companies to register with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and obtain a DOT number for each of their trucks. The number, which consists of a combination of digits and letters, helps the government hold these companies accountable for the services they are providing. Wyoming has specific regulations regarding commercial trucking that must be met in order to obtain and maintain a DOT number. This includes ensuring that their practices comply with federal safety regulations and keeping appropriate records related to vehicle maintenance. A valid DOT number provides vendors and customers peace of mind since they can verify the company's reliability through its registration with Wyoming's Department of Transportation.
Federal MC Authority
Wyoming has become an attractive destination for motor carriers due to its relaxed commercial trucking regulations. Wyoming is one of the few states that issues a federal Motor Carrier (MC) number which authorizes companies to transport for-hire freight throughout the United States. With this authority, Wyoming motor carriers enjoy several unique privileges including access to larger interstate markets and reduced paperwork. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) offers Wyoming-registered motor carriers the ability to remain compliant with federal motor carrier safety requirements while reducing regulatory burdens. With Wyoming's generous federal MC authority and other trucking-friendly policies, it’s no wonder more and more motor carriers are looking to Wyoming as their preferred destination.
Wyoming commercial truckers must take extra steps to ensure they're in accordance with Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) laws. To do so, Wyoming-based commercial truck drivers and transportation companies must complete and submit a form known as an BOC-3 from the FMCSA. This filing provides documentation of your Wyoming business' contacts to be used by motor carrier regulators in other states, ensuring you will be able to follow relevant state regulations during their travels. The BOC-3 filing is used to establish contacts within Wyoming when applying for operating authority throughout the United States and it’s required for all Wyoming businesses involved in interstate commercial trucking.
Wyoming is one of the states that require commercial trucking fleets to complete a Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filing. The UCR filing serves as an annual registration for a fleet of commercial trucks providing interstate freight transportation, based on weight, throughout Wyoming and other participating states. Not all states have the same requirements for commercial trucking so it is important for businesses to ensure that their fleet is compliant with Wyoming’s UCR filing requirements. Wyoming and other participating states require every commercial truck in a fleet to be registered through this program in order for it to operate legally between state lines. Having updated and compliant Unified Carrier Registration will help businesses avoid expenses from non-compliance or violations from regulatory actions taken by Wyoming and other states participating in the program.
Wyoming is home to some of the most incredible commercial trucking, and part of owning and operating a truck in Wyoming requires registration with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In order to stay compliant with Wyoming law, owners must pay the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). The HVUT is administered by the IRS and is an annual fee on any commercial motor vehicle that has a gross weight of 55,000 pounds or more. All truck owners in Wyoming who register such heavy vehicles must pay the 2290 tax each year. The 2290 heavy vehicle use tax ensures that Wyoming’s roads remain safe and well taken care of for all motorists.
