**** ALERT *****
It is DOT policy to make records available to the public to the greatest extent possible, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act. Upon the completion of the form OP-1 online your information will be made public and you may receive telephone calls from outside service providers that are neither authorized nor sanctioned by FMCSA.

In recognition of the President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America and following the Department's guidance to take all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of the USDOT workforce, FMCSA has reassessed the safety of having registration application forms mailed to the Agency. Any mail, including forms, that was sent to FMCSA on or after Friday, March 13, may not be processed in a timely manner. Please resend them via fax or web form as directed below:

  • Web form: (select email at the top of the page)
  • Fax: (202) 366-3477
  • 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.

    If you do not have your USDOT PIN or need to reset it, please visit our PIN request website:

    PLEASE NOTE: The FMCSA has implemented a more stringent credit card and transaction verification procedure. All credit card transactions now require verification of the credit card number, expiration date, security code, billing address and telephone number.

    To update your Docket Number (Operating Authority) and USDOT Number information electronically, you will need a USDOT Personal Identification Number (PIN).

    Click here to request your USDOT PIN. Allow 4 to 7 business days to receive your PIN by mail.

    Note: Reinstatements may not be processed immediately. It is the responsibility of the motor carrier to ensure that they are in full compliance with all FMCSA regulations prior to beginning interstate operations.

    ** ALERT ** The online PIN request system is temporarily unavailable. However, you may still request a PIN to be sent by mail to the mailing address on file. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.
