Types of Operating Authority

If you’re a first-time applicant for MC authority and are intending to tackle the process on your own, be prepared for a world of confusion.

Existing trucking companies applying for additional authorities are eligible to use OP-series forms. New applicants will be required to use the Unified Registration System (URS). The type(s) of operating authority requested will determine the correct form to be submitted and level of insurance that is required. FMCSA does not refund application fees, therefore, be careful and select only the operating authority relevant to the specific transportation business you will be operating.

The FMSCA website has a dedicated page Types of Operating Authority to help guide you through this initial selection. Once completed, additional forms and fees need to be submitted. Multiple links throughout the Department of Transportation’s website steer you to the numerous pages of information you’ll need to manage as you complete all the required processes. A banner providing customer service contact information warns of long wait times, no doubt due to the complexity of the processes.
