Permanent Fleet Registration (PFR)

In California, a Permanent Fleet Registration (PFR) is a type of registration offered by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) for commercial vehicles with 25 or more registered vehicles. The PFR program allows companies with large fleets to register all of their vehicles under one registration number and receive permanent license plates that do not require annual renewal.

It is issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and is required for all carriers who operate vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 10,001 pounds or more, or who transport hazardous materials or oversized loads.

Commercial registration services

Your job title may be fleet manager, permit & licensing manager or logistics coordinator – all of these titles are connected – and all of them rely on the getting the green light from the Department of Motor Vehicles to legally operate on our roads. Whether it be a DOT biennial update; an MCP renewal or keeping your registrations paid and up to date, there are multiple moving parts to your operation. There are certain tasks that should be kept in-house, and some that should be outsourced, and in my opinion, outsourcing your commercial vehicle registration needs is the smart thing to do.
