IFTA Credential Grace Period

February 23, 2017

Written by Yesenia Carrillo

A member of the International Fuel Tax Association should be aware of the IFTA credential grace period. Concurrent IFTA members have a two month grace period that begins in January and ends in February to display renewed IFTA licenses and decals.

During this grace period members are to display either valid current or prior IFTA license and decals from the jurisdiction they are operating from or a valid single-trip permit from the IFTA jurisdiction in which they are operating.

New IFTA members are allowed a two-month grace period from the date of the new member’s IFTA program implementation to display the IFTA license and decals.

As with existing members, new members must maintain the proper credentials for traveling in each jurisdiction they are operating until they display the valid IFTA license and decals during the grace period.

It is important that during your IFTA grace period, one or more of the following credentials are displayed.

  • A valid 2017 IFTA license and two IFTA decals issued by an IFTA member jurisdiction.
  • A valid 2016 IFTA license and two IFTA decals from an IFTA member jurisdiction (if a renewal application has been filed for 2017)
  • A valid trip permit issued by the IFTA member jurisdiction through which they are operating
