Trip Permits

MoDOT Carrier Express allows any account holder to order trip permits online. If you have a userID and password for the MoDOT Carrier Express system, you’re ready to order.

If you do not have MoDOT Carrier Express access, or have never registered with Missouri, you can obtain access within one or two work days. Carriers who’ve never registered in Missouri must complete a New Customer form that is available on the Forms and Manuals page at www.modot.org/mcs, obtain their ID and password and be ready to go within a day or two.

As with other MoDOT Carrier Express invoices, payment can be made online with an e-Check, credit card or debit card.


72-Hour Reciprocity Trip Permit $10  Interstate

Required for carriers based elsewhere that do not have Missouri on their IRP cab card. Must have prior to entry into Missouri. Valid in Missouri only.

72-Hour Special Fuel Permit $10   Interstate
Carriers that do not have an IFTA license must have a fuel permit for each state when operating interstate. Drivers must have this permit prior to entry into Missouri – even if they are based in Missouri and are coming home. Valid in Missouri only.

72-Hour Trip Permit $5  Intrastate
Carriers use this permit if they’ve been approved for intrastate operating authority but want to move before the required decals arrive. For example, a company purchases a new truck and wants to put it on the road immediately.

Hunter’s Permit $25 Interstate
When a lease is cancelled and the license plate is surrendered to the lessor, this permit grants former lessees authority to move empty in the 48 states and 10 provinces that participate in the International Registration Plan up to 30 days.

Temporary Decal Permit 

Free Interstate
This 30-day permit is used by carriers who are approved for and waiting on a Missouri-issued IFTA decal. For example, a company purchases a new truck and wants to put it on the road immediately. Valid in all IFTA jurisdictions.

Combination Permit  $15-25  
Carriers can request a combination of 72-hour reciprocity, fuel or intrastate authority trip permits.
