A new online service from West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles makes it easier for commercial truckers to travel in the state.
Trucking companies with commercial vehicles not registered in the state must provide detailed information and obtain trip permits for temporary travel through the state at the IRP/IFTA section of the department’s website.
Truckers can obtain a single-trip permit by entering owner, truck and trip information and making payment by credit card through a secure service. After the transaction is complete, permits can be printed.
Trucking companies or operators can register an account and the system will retain information on trucks, addresses and other data for future trip-permit requests.
Affected tractors are equipped with an automated Eaton UltraShift Plus or Eaton Advantage Transmission with right hand stalk shifter. In the affected trucks, the display on the instrument panel can indicate “N” when the shifter is set into “D” or “R,” causing the truck not to move.
