"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."

The U.S. Department of Transportation uses DOT numbers to identify carriers. Essentially, it’s a tool the Department of Transportation uses to keep tabs on carriers, their trucks, their drivers, their overall safety rating, and their operations.
For example, the Department of Transportation might collect and monitor the safety information about your company that they obtain through audits, inspections, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and more.
