The following information highlights the motorcoach regulatory guidelines outlined by Kansas law. To avoid potential delays, register your authority and purchase the necessary permits in advance of your trip(s). We want your travel in Kansas to be enjoyable and trouble-free. Stop at the first open weigh station to show your identification and permits. After the paperwork is verified, your motorcoach may "roll through" subsequent weigh stations throughout Kansas.
INTERSTATE Passenger Service (across state lines):
1. Registration for FHWA (ICC) Authority
Before entering Kansas, register your vehicle with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to receive your USDOT number. All commercial motor carriers in Kansas are required to display their DOT number if that vehicle has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross combination weight rating of 10,001 or more pounds.

2. Registration for Single State Authority
Before entering Kansas, register your FHWA (ICC) authority with the Single State Registration System (SSRS) in your base jurisdiction. You will need to provide proof of insurance and your base state will collect fees and issue a receipt. A copy of this receipt must be carried in each vehicle that is registered. If your base jurisdiction does not participate in this program you may use a jurisdiction that does. Kansas does not issue any temporary trip permits. For more information

4. Property Valuation Rendition
Kansas state law requires all motor carriers that are registered to operate in the state of Kansas to make an annual filing with the Kansas Department of Revenue. Property tax forms (renditions) are usually mailed to the carriers during February of the taxing year. The information provided by the motor carrier on these renditions is used to assess an ad valorem tax, a tax according to value, on equipment operating in or through Kansas in a haul-for-hire capacity. For more information about the motor carrier property tax please contact:
