If you previously had an active operating authority(MC Number) and need to reinstate the authority due to revocation, DOT Operating Authority can assist you in obtaining an active status. Surely, you don’t want to waste your time on filing forms and applications. Our process agents are available to answer any questions you might have.
To reactivate your authority, you will need to request reinstatement of the motor carrier operating authority (to become active). However, there are cases in which you may not request a reinstatement; therefore, you must re-apply for operating authority using an OP-1 application and pay the application fee again.
