Permanent Fleet Registration

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.


The PFR program is designed to make it easier and more efficient for companies with large fleets to manage their registrations and renewals. By registering all of their vehicles under a single PFR, companies can save time and money on registration fees, avoid the need to renew each vehicle’s registration every year, and simplify the management of their fleet.

To qualify for a PFR, a company must have at least 25 registered vehicles in California and comply with all applicable safety and emissions regulations. Companies must also have a good compliance history and must maintain an active motor carrier permit or operating authority from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) or the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).


If your company operates a large fleet of commercial vehicles in California, a Permanent Fleet Registration could be a cost-effective and convenient option for managing your registrations. Contact the DMV or a registration service for more information on how to apply for a PFR.
