"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

Believe it or not, a USDOT number is free to get — and keeping it up to date year to year is free too! Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for your MC number.
The price of an MC number varies depending on which operational authorities a business needs. Essentially, the more classifications you need, the higher the MC number cost. An MC number costs an initial $300 and an additional $300 for every classification needed. For example, if you need to file for Transportation of International Household Goods authority on top of base classifications, you’ll need to pay $600 in total.
