An IFTA license will be issued to each IFTA licensee. A photocopy of the license must be maintained in the cab of each qualified motor vehicle. The original license should be kept in a safe place. The IFTA license is valid for the calendar year January 1 through December 31. If a carrier is found operating a qualified motor vehicle without an IFTA license and decals, the vehicle operator will be subject to the purchase of a trip permit and/or a citation.
Two matching decals will be issued for each qualified motor vehicle operated by the IFTA licensee. One decal must be placed on the exterior portion of the driver's side of the power unit and the second decal must be placed on the exterior portion of the passenger's side of the power unit.
A licensee may request extra decals for fleet additions. When ordering additional decals throughout the license year, the licensee must complete an IFTA-1 Form (Application for IFTA Credentials) and submit same to the Motor Carrier Services Section or one of the following DMV offices:
Blythewood DMV - 10311 Wilson Boulevard, Blythewood SC 29016

Decals that are assigned to owner-operators under long-term lease must be recalled by the licensee once the lease is terminated.
In order to avoid a citation, all operators of qualified motor vehicles must have proper credentials or a fuel trip permit, unless otherwise exempt. Refer to page 14 of the IFTA Manual for a list of authorized trip permitting agencies.
If you are licensed as a dealer, manufacturer, drive-away or transporter, you should temporarily display the IFTA decals in a visible manner on both sides of the cab and a copy of your IFTA license must be in the vehicle while being operated in this or any other IFTA member jurisdiction.
