Secretary of State
If you rent or lease your vehicle to an interstate motor carrier, you are running under their authority and they are responsible for the safe operation of the vehicle. You are required to update your Motor Carrier Responsible for Safety with IRP if you lease to a different company.
You are also required to submit your USDOT and TIN numbers to IRP to register your vehicles for the first time or renew your vehicles.
The IRP application and renewal forms request the USDOT number for each vehicle and whether the Motor Carrier Responsible for Safety will change during the registration year.
Short Term Lease – the vehicle will be rented or leased for 30 days or less to an interstate motor carrier
Long Term Lease – the vehicle will be leased for more than 30 days to an interstate motor carrier
