The Cost of Registering USDOT & MC #’s
Most US truck drivers will need both an MC and USDOT Number to operate. Oftentimes, the FMCSA will charge a $300 filing fee for registration. But you do not have to file for a DOT or MC Number through the FMCSA. Instead, our organization can file every document on your behalf. As a result, you and your trucking company can save time and money. Please check out the MC Number and DOT Number pages on our website. These pages contain the exact charges for registering a DOT or MC Number. Plus, we also provide trucking packages featuring full-scale FMCSA registration. As a result, your business can receive all FMCSA and DOT registration at once.
Our company can often provide a customer with a DOT Number in only one hour. Of course, the exact time window depends on how fast the FMCSA and DOT is. But wait, what is a DOT Number? A DOT Number functions as a federal number for intrastate or interstate travel. Each number is an identifier whenever the DOT tracks or assesses information. This process often involves the DOT analyzing the safety information of a company. Almost all carriers must go through the number registration process and pay DOT fees.
Who Must Have a USDOT #?
Any interstate vehicle that weighs over 10,000 pounds must have a number. (This rule also applies to the majority of intrastate vehicles in the US.) Does your vehicle weigh that much and transport goods for compensation? If so, you must secure a number right away by paying small fees. You can do so through our DOT registration services. A DOT Number is also for vehicles that have the ability to transport over fifteen passengers. If your company’s transportation is for compensation, then you need a number. A USDOT Number is also for an interstate vehicle hauling hazardous materials.
What Is the Purpose of an MC Number?
An MC Number refers to an official Motor Carrier Number that the FMCSA issues. This federal number is for almost all interstate commercial carriers. Through MC registration, a number will provide a truck driver with Operating Authority. So, are you or your carrier unsure if you need a number with MC status? There is a very strong chance that you do indeed need this number by paying fees. That’s because almost every carrier crossing state lines needs FMCSA authority. And you cannot receive FMCSA Operating Authority without having an MC Number. The only exception is if a truck driver is operating as a private property carrier.

What Do I Need To Register a USDOT #?
Getting a new DOT Number is simple and straightforward through our services. The key step is for our experts to ask you for specific business information. This way, we can understand the legal classifications of your trucking business. Here is some of the basic information we must have to register you with a new number. First, we will need your company operation classification and cargo classification. Then, we will ask for your trucking operation classification. In some cases, we will also need a little more information to supply your number.
Here is an example of some of the extra information that the FMCSA could need from you. The agency might ask you to detail how many trucks you intend to have in your fleet. You could also need to state your status of ownership and the type of each vehicle. The FMCSA and DOT will need to know if you plan to operate as an intrastate carrier. If not, your trucking business will receive interstate carrier classification. Do you or your motor carrier plan to transport hazardous materials? If so, you will need to receive a hazmat classification from the DOT or FMCSA.
More Information About Receiving a USDOT #
A USDOT Number is the most common type of trucking registration. Almost all businesses operating commercial vehicles pay fees to secure this number. A DOT Number is for vehicles that cross state lines or travel outside of a home state. But many intrastate trucking companies must also secure DOT Numbers. An intrastate carrier uses vehicles that never leave the home state.
So, how does the DOT classify a commercial vehicle? It is any truck or truck and trailer combination that has a GVWR over 10,000 pounds. Even a pickup truck, van, or semi-tractor can use number registration through the DOT. All types of industry professionals need numbers with DOT status to operate. From landscapers to farmers to construction companies. Please call us now if you need more information about DOT registration. Our organization can take care of DOT Number registration on your behalf. When doing so, we promise to keep our fees low. This way, your carrier will be able to experience a better profit margin.
Registering for UCR
Most interstate trucking companies with DOT Number registration also must have UCR registration. UCR refers to the FMCSA Unified Carrier Registration Plan and Agreement. The UCR system can register your business DOT Number across all states. Please check out the UCR page on our website if you need more information. Our organization can register your company with the FMCSA UCR system. When doing so, we’ll keep our fees low so that your business can thrive.
Keep in mind that UCR registration never takes the place of IRP registration. It also never replaces apportioned license plate registration. The FMCSA can provide fees if a motor carrier has not completed UCR registration. The cost of those fees is often about $300 to $500. But sometimes the fees can cost a lot more. You can prevent receiving these FMCSA fees by having our organization assist you. Our experts are standing by to complete your DOT and UCR registration right now. All you've got to do is dial our number and give us a call.
Is There a Fee for IRP?
Yes, the DOT and FMCSA will charge a fee for IRP registration. But the exact amount of an IRP fee (or many fees) depends on what state you're operating in. The average IRP fees are around $1,200 to $2,000 for every truck. But certain IRP fees can exceed this amount. Please call us if you have received an IRP fee that you are unsure about. Our registration experts know all about FMCSA and DOT fees.
Let’s say that your carrier pays IRP fees and sets up an IRP account. That’s when your business will receive an apportioned license plate. You can then attach the apportioned plate to your power unit. Plus, the FMCSA will provide an apportioned cab card after you complete registration. Every US carrier has to renew its plates on an annual basis. This is a number one rule when it comes to IRP registration. Failing to renew plates on a truck can result in massive DOT and FMCSA fees.
