Your Guide for Securing a USDOT Number in Compliance With the FMCSA

Does your organization face the possibility of needing to secure a USDOT number? If so, you've come to the right spot. Please follow along as this article explores how you can get a DOT number. Why does having a DOT number matter so much

It helps identify companies during standard safety monitoring processes. For example, your organization might need to take part in a compliance review or audit. Or, your company might need to undergo an inspection. It could even need a crash investigation in which an insurance company gets notified. Let’s jump right into how you can secure a USDOT number.



How to Secure USDOT Number Registration for a Carrier Across All US States

DOT Moving Authority phone(702) 333-2430


Getting a USDOT number is not a complicated process. Many movers believe that it is. But it’s not as long as you use the right resources. That’s why Moving Authority created this USDOT registration guide. It is so you can 
maintain compliance with the FMCSA. The registration process can get broken down into four steps. Here are the key registration steps:



-Step One: Figure Out if a USDOT Number’s Needed for Your Particular Carrier

The process of getting a USDOT number begins by asking yourself a simple question. It is: Is my organization required to file a USDOT application? Almost all commercial carriers must have a DOT number. There are very few of them that do not need to have to have one. Motor carriers need to complete registration if they conduct interstate travel operations. But that’s not all. The carriers must also meet one of the following pieces of criteria for compliance: 

1. They operate trucks that weigh more than ten thousand pounds.

2. Nine to fifteen passengers get transported for pay. (One of nine through fifteen individuals counts as the driver.)

3. More than sixteen passengers (including a driver) get transported with no compensation.

4. Hazardous materials get transported. Say that none of these criteria applies to your organization. That means you do not need to file a USDOT application. Instead, you might only have to register with a state office/local jurisdiction.





-Step Two: Provide Every Piece of DOT Carrier Status Information for the FMCSA


Sure, the USDOT application process is very simple. But it will get complicated if you do not provide basic information about your company. Make sure that you and your team fill out the following pieces of information.

1. The company operation. (This applies to operating authority status.)
2. The operation’s official classification.
3. The official cargo classification.
4. If it applies to your commercial carrier company, a HazMat classification.
5. The number of vehicles that your company uses.
6. The type of vehicles that your company uses.
7. The ownership status of the carrier vehicles. (There is either a trip lease, term lease, or the vehicles have ownership.)
8. The driver status of the carrier vehicles. (This applies to total drivers, total CDL drivers, interstate, and intrastate.) 




-Step Three: Download the Official USDOT Registration Status Application

You can now either file online or download a USDOT application. Keep in mind that there are three separate USDOT forms for applications. You only need to fill out a single form that applies the most to your company. Here are the three forms to choose from.

1. An MCS-150. This is the standard form that applies to almost all carriers.
2. An MCS-150B. This combines a HazMat application with the USDOT number application.
3. An MCS-150C. This combines the Intermodal Equipment Provider application with the USDOT number application.


Say you choose to file the DOT application online with the FMCSA gov portal.
In this case, the online system will need you to select the right form to use



-Step Four: Send Out the Form or File the USDOT Registration Online for FMCSA

You're almost there toward securing your USDOT number. You can go ahead and fill out the form and send it out. Or, you can file your DOT registration online. Make sure that you send a physical copy to the Washington, DC FMCSA address listed on their website. Keep in mind that there is never a fee for filing a DOT registration online. But enforcement is strict.

Your registration cannot contain any errors. (This also applies to MC number registration.) If you need our team to 
check out your registration, send it over right now. When you send us information, it will remain confidential.

It is always best to talk to the FMCSA authority before you attempt to secure a USDOT number. Contact can take place over the phone or through email. You can find relevant contact information on the official FMCSA government website. Their website also contains copies of needed forms that you can download. You can even request the FMCSA gov authority to mail you all the forms that you need.

DOT Number Status: Requirement Information for Registration





Understanding DOT number requirements is crucial to the success of any organization. A company must register with the FMCSA when one of the following factors is at play.

1. The company hauls cargo in interstate or trucking commerce.

2. The company operates commercial vehicles that transport people. But FMCSA registration is not enough. These companies also need to have USDOT numbers. 

3. Is your commercial carrier service based in Florida? If so, some Florida registration regulations are different than other states. They used to appear the same. But they have gotten adjusted over the years. Make sure that your carrier has the gov authority to operate in Florida. If you need help doing so, contact our firm right now.

This is about much more than securing an MC number in Florida. It’s about every driver at your commercial carrier knowing the law. That’s why our team can teach you about every US GOV factor that they need. We’ll make sure you're aware of all intrastate operating requirements. That’s because our workers have helped carriers secure every license in the industry. No matter the license, we’ll help your team secure it fast.


So, when is a carrier/household goods mover required to get a USDOT number? You’ll need one if one of your vehicles transports hazardous materials. If so, you're going to need to have a safety permit for interstate commerce. You’ll also need a DOT number if the gross weight of one of your vehicles exceeds 4,536 kg/10,001 pounds.

As mentioned earlier, the number of transported passengers also matters. You’ll need a DOT number if a vehicle transports more than eight people with compensation. When will you also need one? If you transport more than fifteen people without compensation. If one of these factors is at play and you're involved with an Interstate trucking authority package for commerce, a DOT number’s a must-have. 

Interstate commerce applies to United States transportation enforcement, traffic compliance, and trade. Many companies transport goods between one state and another state or country. If your company does so, having a DOT number is a necessity. Some companies conduct transportation from one place in a state to another. A DOT number is also required for this type of operation. Under what circumstances? If origination/termination took place in another state or outside the country.

Say that you are unsure whether your company qualifies to get a USDOT number. If so, you should contact the FMCSA as fast as you can. This will help ensure that your company complies with all federal regulations. Doing so will do more than protect your company from legal concerns. Adhering to safety regulations can also save the lives of drivers and motorists. In fact, safety is the biggest issue when it comes to FMCSA rules and regulations for motor carriers.



It is common for intrastate companies to get confused about their DOT requirements. Here is one of the most standard situations of confusion. Say your company does not transport hazardous materials. Plus, your vehicles never go outside of your company’s state. Do you still need to have a USDOT number as part of US government requirements? Well, that depends on the rules and regulations of your state.



It also depends on what type of cargo that your company transports. In most states, your company would still need to have a DOT number. But in some states, you would only need a state identification number. If you're confused about this or anything else, do not hesitate to contact the DMV in your state. The DMV will help motor carriers figure out whether they need a DOT number or not.




How Long Does It Take a Carrier to Get a Required DOT Number in the United States?



DOT Moving Authority phone(702) 333-2430

The process of securing a USDOT number should not take very long. In fact, online USDOT registration will process on an almost-immediate basis. Your DOT number will get issued on-the-spot. But, that will only happen if your company does not get rejected upon review. Say that you need to send out your USDOT application by mail, email, or fax. If so, expect the processing time to last about four to six weeks. 


Keep in mind that by-mail applications get rejected more often than online applications. Why? Because some by-mail applications are hard to read, unsigned, or are not complete. This is why your by-mail application must contain all the needed information. And that information must be easy-to-read. Otherwise, you will have to send out another by-mail DOT application or apply online.

Keep in mind that you cannot apply online without a credit card. The FMCSA uses credit card information as a digital signature. It also uses the information to confirm identity. But do not despair. You shouldn’t get charged for securing a USDOT number online by using a credit card. Another form that needs to get done is the BOC-3 form to be filed annually





Displaying Your USDOT Number and Registration in All States




The US Department of Transportation has regulations about displaying USDOT numbers. Let’s go over their size and location requirements. The USDOT number and company name must get displayed on both sides of every vehicle. The name and number should go on the sides of vehicle power units. In other words, place them on vehicles and cab doors. This should happen before any vehicle gets put into service. Make sure that the lettering is bold and contrasts with surface colors. At least two inches is the needed height for USDOT-compliant lettering.

Try to make your lettering as big as you can to prevent negative issues from taking place. Applying magnetic signs and vinyl graphics to vehicle doors is very easy. Double-check to make sure that your DOT numbers are visible from 50 feet away from each vehicle. Also, contact our firm if you’d like a list of products. This refers to ones that could make your vehicles get more USDOT-compliant.

A boat trailer is a trailer designed to launch, retrieve, carry and sometimes store boats.

In 1976, the number one hit on the Billboard chart was "Convoy," a novelty song by C.W. McCall about a convoy of truck drivers evading speed traps and toll booths across America. The song inspired the 1978 action film Convoy directed by Sam Peckinpah. After the film's release, thousands of independent truck drivers went on strike and participated in violent protests during the 1979 energy crisis (although similar strikes had occurred during the 1973 energy crisis).

In the United States, shipments larger than about 7,000 kg (15,432 lb) are classified as truckload freight (TL). It is more efficient and affordable for a large shipment to have exclusive use of one larger trailer. This is opposed to having to share space on a smaller Less than Truckload freight carrier.

The public idea of the trucking industry in the United States popular culture has gone through many transformations. However, images of the masculine side of trucking are a common theme throughout time. The 1940's first made truckers popular, with their songs and movies about truck drivers. Then in the 1950's they were depicted as heroes of the road, living a life of freedom on the open road. Trucking culture peaked in the 1970's as they were glorified as modern days cowboys, outlaws, and rebels. Since then the portrayal has come with a more negative connotation as we see in the 1990's. Unfortunately, the depiction of truck drivers went from such a positive depiction to that of troubled serial killers.

“ The first original song about truck driving appeared in 1939 when Cliff Bruner and His Boys recorded Ted Daffan's "Truck Driver's Blues," a song explicitly marketed to roadside cafe owners who were installing juke boxes in record numbers to serve truckers and other motorists.” - Shane Hamilton

In 1978 Sylvester Stallone starred in the film "F.I.S.T.". The story is loosely based on the 'Teamsters Union'. This union is a labor union which includes truck drivers as well as its then president, Jimmy Hoffa.

As we know in the trucking industry, some trailers are part of large trucks, which we call semi-trailer trucks for transportation of cargo. Trailers may also be used in a personal manner as well, whether for personal or small business purposes.

The United States' Interstate Highway System is full of bypasses and loops with the designation of a three-digit number. Usually beginning with an even digit, it is important to note that this pattern is highly inconsistent. For example, in Des Moines, Iowa the genuine bypass is the main route. More specifically, it is Interstate 35 and Interstate 80, with the loop into downtown Des Moines being Interstate 235. As it is illustrated in this example, they do not always consistently begin with an even number. However, the 'correct' designation is exemplified in Omaha, Nebraska. In Omaha, Interstate 480 traverses the downtown area, which is bypassed by Interstate 80, Interstate 680, and Interstate 95. Interstate 95 then in turn goes through Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, Interstate 295 is the bypass around Philadelphia, which leads into New Jersey. Although this can all be rather confusing, it is most important to understand the Interstate Highway System and the role bypasses play.

Public transportation is vital to a large part of society and is in dire need of work and attention. In 2010, the DOT awarded $742.5 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to 11 transit projects. The awardees specifically focused light rail projects. One includes both a commuter rail extension and a subway project in New York City. The public transportation New York City has to offer is in need of some TLC. Another is working on a rapid bus transit system in Springfield, Oregon. The funds also subsidize a heavy rail project in northern Virginia. This finally completes the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Metro Silver Line, connecting to Washington, D.C., and the Washington Dulles International Airport. This is important because the DOT has previously agreed to subsidize the Silver Line construction to Reston, Virginia.

Truckload shipping is the movement of large amounts of cargo. In general, they move amounts necessary to fill an entire semi-trailer or inter-modal container. A truckload carrier is a trucking company that generally contracts an entire trailer-load to a single customer. This is quite the opposite of a Less than Truckload (LTL) freight services. Less than Truckload shipping services generally mix freight from several customers in each trailer. An advantage Full Truckload shipping carriers have over Less than Truckload carrier services is that the freight isn't handled during the trip. Yet, in an LTL shipment, goods will generally be transported on several different trailers.

The term "lorry" has an ambiguous origin, but it is likely that its roots were in the rail transport industry. This is where the word is known to have been used in 1838 to refer to a type of truck (a freight car as in British usage) specifically a large flat wagon. It may derive from the verb lurry, which means to pull or tug, of uncertain origin. It's expanded meaning was much more exciting as "self-propelled vehicle for carrying goods", and has been in usage since 1911. Previously, unbeknownst to most, the word "lorry" was used for a fashion of big horse-drawn goods wagon.

Implemented in 2014, the National Registry, requires all Medical Examiners (ME) who conduct physical examinations and issue medical certifications for interstate CMV drivers to complete training on FMCSA’s physical qualification standards, must pass a certification test. This is to demonstrate competence through periodic training and testing. CMV drivers whose medical certifications expire must use MEs on the National Registry for their examinations. FMCSA has reached its goal of at least 40,000 certified MEs signing onto the registry. All this means is that drivers or movers can now find certified medical examiners throughout the country who can perform their medical exam. FMCSA is preparing to issue a follow-on “National Registry 2” rule stating new requirements. In this case, MEs are to submit medical certificate information on a daily basis. These daily updates are sent to the FMCSA, which will then be sent to the states electronically. This process will dramatically decrease the chance of drivers falsifying medical cards.

The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

A circumferential route refers to a public transportation system that follows the route in the shape of a circle. Over time a nickname developed in the European Union, calling transportation networks such as these a "ring road". This is no surprise as Europe has several famous "ring roads" such as the Berliner Ring, the Brussels Ring, the Amsterdam Ring, the Boulevard Périphérique around Paris and the Leeds Inner and Outer ring roads. Other countries adopted the term as well which in turn made the name go international. Australia's Melbourne's Western Ring Road and India's Hyderabad's Outer Ring Road both adopted the name. However in Canada, the term is most commonly used, with "orbital" used to a much lesser extent.   On the contrary, the United States calls many "ring roads" as belt-lines, beltways, or loops instead. For example, the Capital Beltway around Washington, D.C. Some ring roads use terminology such as "Inner Loop" and "Outer Loop". This is, of course, for the sake of directional sense, since compass directions cannot be determined around the entire loop.

Throughout the United States, bypass routes are a special type of route most commonly used on an alternative routing of a highway around a town. Specifically when the main route of the highway goes through the town. Originally, these routes were designated as "truck routes" as a means to divert trucking traffic away from towns. However, this name was later changed by AASHTO in 1959 to what we now call a "bypass". Many "truck routes" continue to remain regardless that the mainline of the highway prohibits trucks.

The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

Heavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).

In today's society, there are rules and regulations everywhere you go, the same goes for commercial vehicles. The federal government has strict regulations that must be met, such as how many hours a driver may be on the clock. For example, 11 hours driving /14 hours on-duty followed by 10 hours off, with a max of 70 hours/8 days or 60 hours/7 days. They can also set rules deciding how much rest and sleep time is required, however, these are only a couple of regulations set. Any violations are often subject to harsh penalties. In some cases, there are instruments to track each driver's hours, which are becoming more necessary.

Known as a truck in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, it is essentially a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Otherwise known as a lorry in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, and Indian Subcontinent. Trucks vary not only in their types, but also in size, power, and configuration, the smallest being mechanically like an automobile. Commercial trucks may be very large and powerful, configured to mount specialized equipment. These are necessary in the case of fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators etc.
