Q. Passenger Carrier Authority Application Process
Passenger Carrier Authority Application Process
For more information on who needs to apply for passenger carrier authority, click here.
To apply for passenger carrier authority, first-time applicants must begin the online registration process with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) via the Unified Registration System. This process requires a credit card.
If you already have a US DOT number and/or an additional operating authority, you must apply via the former application procedures.
Bear in mind that motor carrier authority applications may be selected for additional vetting,
which can take an additional 8 weeks or more.
