Effective August 1, 2023, FMCSA will no longer accept requests from entities to un-dismiss their operating authority application. This will allow FMCSA to review new applications to ensure they are fit, willing, and able to comply with Federal regulations and laws. If an entity’s application was dismissed after January 1, 2022, it can submit a request for un-dismissal through July 31, 2023. Beginning August 1, 2023, if your application is dismissed, you will need to submit a new application and pay the appropriate fee ($300 per type of operating authority requested).
*Please note:* A dismissal is the equivalent of a rejection and the only cure is either (1) an appeal, because you have evidence that insurance was actually filed, or (2) to file a new application.

FMCSA recommends all mail (including forms) be submitted electronically via either of the below methods.
Using one of these methods will significantly reduce the application processing time. For Registration and Licensing forms that are submitted via the web form, the applicant will receive a confirmation number by email.
April 27, 2020 PIN Consolidation: FMCSA has consolidated the USDOT, MC & MX PINs into one USDOT PIN. This effort has eliminated the MC and MX PINs. FMCSA systems must now be accessed using your USDOT PIN only.
