AVERAGE PER VEHICLE MILES
On original IRP applications for Florida as the base state, if there were no actual miles accrued during the reporting period, you will be billed for all jurisdictions based on Florida’s Average Per Vehicle (APV) distance chart. The miles reflected on the APV distance chart is the average distance of all registrants in each jurisdiction.
Every applicant must obtain a current IRP cab card (registration) and license plate before operating any vehicle. You must carry the registration in the vehicle at all times.
PLEASE BE AWARE – Even though your cab card indicates a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of over 80,000 pounds for a particular jurisdiction, you must also contact that jurisdiction to determine if you will need an overweight permit.
