2.2 Registering—Obtaining a U.S. DOT Number (390.200T, 390.19T, 385.301T, 392.9a)

Companies may find they are subject to both registration requirements (Registration 49 USC 31134; U.S. DOT Number [49 CFR 390] and operating authority [49 CFR 365]) or either one separately. Motor carriers can find out which registration requirements are applicable to their operation and register on FMCSA’s Registration web page.

Everyone that registers with FMCSA is required to understand and comply with all applicable Federal safety regulations before registering.

Who Can Access Carrier Registration Information?

Once carriers register, the registration becomes public information, and third-party organizations may contact them to offer services or solicit business. Learn how to protect yourself from potentially fraudulent calls, e-mails, faxes, or other correspondence.
