What is Average Per Vehicle Distance (APVD) calculation?
The APVD calculation is based on the average distance vehicles from the jurisdiction in which you are registering traveled to all other IRP member jurisdictions during the previous calendar year. It is used to calculate your IRP registration fee that will be apportioned to all member jurisdictions for your first year of operation since you would not have any reported miles from the prior year.
Why is the Average Per Vehicle Distance (APVD) chart different in each jurisdiction?
The APVD chart is based on the average vehicle's distance from the jurisdiction in which you are registering and all other IRP member jurisdictions during the previous calendar year. Vehicles based in two different jurisdictions will likely not travel the same distances in the other member jurisdictions.
Why am I forced to have every jurisdiction on my cab card when I only travel in three?
Vehicles that register with the IRP are authorized to travel in all member jurisdictions using the credentials issued by their base jurisdiction. All of these member jurisdictions are automatically displayed on the cab card. This is done to greatly simplify the registration process and provide flexibility for registrants.
Can I use my own estimated distances?
No, the Average Per Vehicle Distance chart will be used when you do not have actual reported miles from the previous year.
How do you handle a lapsed registration with distance and without?
If a motor carrier is out of the IRP Plan for 18 months, it is required to use the Average Per Vehicle Distance Chart miles. If it is out for less than 18 months, the application is treated as a renewal as if the motor carrier never left the program.
How does a motor carrier register in IRP when it has no actual distance in their base jurisdiction?
Motor carriers within a base jurisdiction are required to have distance in that jurisdiction. If they do not have distance within their base jurisdiction for the reporting period, they are subject to application approval by the base jurisdiction. Each jurisdiction may have additional requirements imposed on the Registrant.
