Motorcoach Regulations & Guidelines

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):

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. For more information contact:

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 contact:
