What Is an MTR Number? (How To Get an MTR Permit & Number)

What is an MTR Number?” That’s a common question our company receives from clients. An MTR Number is a separate designation from a PSG number. Both a PSG and MTR are crucial permits that many carriers need. Carriers making interstate moves in California must secure an MTR Number.

What is an California MTR number

An MTR Number is for motor carriers of property. Meanwhile, a PSG Number is for motor carriers of passengers. MTR is a special designation used to distinguish a unique type of motor carrier. Each number with MTR status gets used for internal record-keeping processes. That also applies to numbers with PSG status. California is the predominant state in the US tracking MTR related numbers.

Some carriers need a PSC designation. This refers to passenger stage corporations. There’s also the TCP motor carrier designation. The TCP designation is only for charter-party carriers. CAL-T is another designation for certain California household goods carriers. Most carriers have to put a CA number, certificate number or permit on their vehicles. Without carrier identification, your company could experience government penalties. Or, your moving company might get penalized by the US government. But do not despair. Moving Authority is here to get your company registered today. Please call us right now to receive an MTR Number. Our registration team can also take care of all other motor carrier registration.

How Does Getting an MTR Number Work?

Moving Authority is the number one MTR license consultant in the US. We created a simple, efficient, and cost-effective system for getting an MTR number.

The commission often gets abbreviated as “PUC.” Our organization can guide your company through the entire PUC registration process. We provide both MTR and PUC consulting services. The services can help you understand how to maintain PUC compliance.
