What is Operating Authority?
Operating authority is permission from the government to haul loads commercially for hire. There are two main pieces of your operating authority: a USDOT Number and MC Number. You need your operating authority if:
- You want to start your own trucking company
- You want to become an owner operator
- You want to become a broker
You’ll also need your BOC-3 process agent filing and make sure your company can pass a new entrant safety audit.

- Save you time. We get all the paperwork done for you, so you can focus on getting your truck on the road. Don’t let paperwork slow you down!
- Save you money. Government regulations can be tricky. We make sure you don’t spend more than you have to. We find what you need (and even what you don’t), so you’re not spending more on registrations or taxes than necessary.
- Give you peace of mind. Your business is unique, which is why we focus on doing the work right the first time. We believe in the work smarter not harder method, which means we take the time needed to get the paperwork filled out correctly, so you don’t have to worry about fines for mistakes in your paperwork.

What You Can Expect From Us
When you call Motor Carrier HQ, we can get your USDOT Number and MC Number the same day you apply. Just give us a call, and our coaches can help walk you through the necessary paperwork. We are happy to take the time to answer all your questions, not only about the FMCSA Registration process, but all that it takes to start and run a successful trucking company.
Once we’ve filled out the application for your USDOT Number and MC Number, it takes a minimum of 21 days for your authority to become active. During that time, we can help you:
- Get proper insurance.
- Complete all drug and alcohol requirements
- Meet any other registration requirements
When your authority has become active, you’ll also need to prepare for the DOT New Entrant Safety Audit as part of FMCSA’s New Entrant Safety Assurance Program. We can help with that, too!
The staff at progressive reporting made getting my authority very very easy they are highly knowledgeable and a pleasure to do business with
I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking dot authority they do it all and no worries.
