"Some say it's simple to get your authority, and that you should save your money and do it yourself. Other people, including myself, are not sure where to even begin. I used a service provided by DAT to get my authority. It was important to me that it was done right the first time, by people who have done this before."
- Chad Boblett - Boblett Brothers Trucking
"They took me by the hand an led me through all of the diffiult and confusing steps to ensure that I started off on the right food. I cannot say it any clearer than these folks know what it's all about."

Obtaining your DOT and MC number is a basic requirement you’ll need to fulfill if you want to run your own trucking business operating across state lines. Each number serves a specific purpose in helping to maintain order within the trucking industry.
USDOT Number: The Department of Transportation issues your DOT number, which becomes the main tracking and reporting number for your trucking business. It is used to keep track of your vehicles, drivers, and safety rating and is essential for anyone starting their own trucking business whether you’re planning to cross state lines or not.
MC Number: The MC number is also essential for most trucking businesses. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues your MC number, which certifies you to legally haul interstate freight – and get paid for your work. If you plan to only operate within a single state (which means never crossing any state lines, even if it’s just on a highway that happens to briefly cross into another state before returning to its original state), you may not need an MC number. However, most businesses choose to get an MC number and get interstate operating authority to not be limited.
We’ll handle the paperwork so you can focus on building your business!
