    I've seen some threads that talk about the same topic, however..

    This is my first truck as a new O/O.

    I am from California, picking up a truck in Ohio. I have insurance (48 states), a DOT #, MC#, IFTA is not set up yet due to EIN mix up at the IRS, but is being corrected. Got the Keeptrucking ELD, so I can log accordingly.

    Only thing that concerns me is bringing the truck back from Ohio to California without stopping at Port of Entries and no IFTA sticker (if applicable).

    Do I still need a trip permit for this..trip? I plan on taking the i70 west to the i15 south the whole way, so most states traveled thru don't need permits (correct?).

    All you need is a temp tag and insurance to drive the truck home, (Bobtail only).

    You need to look like you're running legal, so, a copy of bill of sale in the windshield passenger side looks good to scale operator. You do need to stop at "open" scales. And have your wallet close by, in case you need to buy permits.
