DIFFERENT PERMITS AND LICENSES
The Unified Carrier Registration is compulsory for motor carriers hauling freight across states and international borders. Trucking companies must register in their base jurisdiction to obtain UCR Permit. They are also required to pay an annual fee according to the number of vehicles in their fleet. Failure to comply with this regulation can lead to detention and penalties by the officials.
Trucking authority is a unique identifier issued to commercial trucking companies by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to participate in interstate commerce. Obtaining your MC Authority gives you complete freedom to run your trucking business and stay compliant with the industry regulations.
USDOT Number is issued to trucking companies by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to monitor the safety information obtained during compliance reviews, crash investigations, and inspections. It also ensures safe, modern, and efficient transport systems in the United States. Failure to obtain your USDOT Number can lead to costly fines and penalties.
MOTOR CARRIER PERMIT
A motor carrier permit is a document issued to motor carriers as evidence of registration with the Department of Motor Vehicles. It also indicates meeting all the requirements to operate commercially in the United States. The permit contains information specific to the motor carrier information such as Name, CA#, Mailing address, permit expiration date, and many more.

Motor carriers must register in their base jurisdiction to receive IRP Plates. They must also track and report the mileage driven in each jurisdiction and file IRP Plate Renewal quarterly to stay compliant.
