Intrastate Operating Authority

Intrastate Operating Authority/Intrastate Only Motor Carrier Authority.

Do you simply want to operate a commercial motor vehicle within the boundaries of your state? Are you a registered interstate motor carrier that wants to legally provide point-to-point service within a state?

Virtually, all states have unique requirements to either operate exclusively within their border or to legally transport property (goods) from one point in a state to another. Many mistakenly believe state regulation of trucking operations within a state violates federal law – it does not. States are still allowed to regulate access to their in-state markets and charge origination fees for applications/filings.

The Unified Carrier Registration Act (UCR) of 2005 (Title 49 § 14504) only prohibits states from charging any annual renewal fees associated with intrastate authority or mandatory insurance filings for interstate authorized motor carriers.

We assembled the most complete single-source of information available anywhere on the web to assist you determine applicability of state requirements to your operation. Besides the information we have provided below, there can be additional requirements that apply such as – if you are a LLC or corporation you may need to first register with a particular states Secretary of State as a foreign domiciled corporation before applying for intrastate operating authority.

Even if you only conduct business within a state’s border, if you are operating any commercial motor vehicles above 26,001 pounds you must comply with DOT random drug and alcohol testing regulations. American Alliance Drug Testing can assist you with compliance with these requirements. You can enroll online or call (909) 982-8409.

Finally, if you just want to operate within a single state, many states require that you get an intrastate only U.S. DOT number. Since the launch of the new Unified Registration System by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, something that used to take 10 minutes (getting a U.S. DOT number) now takes an average of 90 minutes. American Alliance Authority & Compliance can get you your intrastate U.S. DOT number for $69. Use our convenient online application or call (909) 758-5060.
