Kentucky Weight Distance Permit

Essential tax license for carriers operating on Kentucky roadways.

The Kentucky Weight Distance Permit, also known as the KYU number, is a crucial tax license required for carriers operating on Kentucky roadways with a combined license weight exceeding 59,999 pounds. Our specialized service ensures a seamless process for obtaining this permit.

Once purchased, the Kentucky Permit (KYU) never requires renewal. However, it is essential to keep your vehicle inventory updated. In case you do not frequently travel through Kentucky, we also offer the option to purchase a one-time temporary KYU Permit per truck.

It's important to note that farm plated vehicles are exempt from paying the KYU tax. Our dedicated team will assist you in navigating the permit acquisition process, ensuring compliance with Kentucky regulations while minimizing administrative burdens.
