Choose the right type of operating authority
It is important to choose the type of operating authority since the type of authorities you choose to impact the amount of money you need to pay.
A USDOT number is mandatory for any business that operates commercial vehicles across state lines or outside of their home state. Moreover, many states also require businesses to have a current USDOT number if they operate commercial vehicles, only in their home state.
If your business or activities are outside your home state, you will also need a UCR registration. UCR registers your business and USDOT number with all the states. It does not take the place of IRP or apportioned license plates as these register the trucks with the states you will operate in. The penalty for not having completed the UCR registration is $300-$500.
