What Permits Are Required for Missouri?
Missouri requires commercial truckers to obtain a Department of Transportation (DOT) number in order to safely operate their vehicles. The DOT number is issued by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and helps to identify the commercial vehicle if there is an emergency. Having this information available allows Missouri's network of emergency responders like fire departments and police officers to quickly address any problems that may arise on Missouri roads. Obtaining a Missouri DOT number is the first step commercial truckers must take in order to maintain safety for themselves and others.
Federal MC Authority
Missouri is home to numerous motor carriers operating with commercial trucking authority. Missouri motor carriers must obtain a Motor Carrier (MC) Number from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) prior to conducting business within Missouri, and in other bordering and non-bordering states as well. This number allows operators of commercial vehicles in Missouri to have their activities regulated and monitored by the FMCSA, ensuring all rules and regulations are followed. Obtaining a Missouri MC Number is the first step many commercial drivers take when they embark on their trucking journey.
Missouri commercial trucking companies must file a federal filing known as BOC-3. This filing is required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and sets forth important information regarding the process agents that Missouri commercial trucking companies have designated to receive certain legal documents on their behalf. By having BOC-3 on file, Missouri commercial trucking companies are better able to stay compliant with federal interstate regulations, ensure that their carriers have correct insurance coverage and make sure that any freight loss or damage claims can be processed without significant delays.
Missouri abolished the Missouri Motor Carrier Identification Report and now requires a new, more traditional approach to registering commercial trucking fleets called the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filing. UCR filings help Missouri and the federal government keep track of the commercial motor vehicles operating in Missouri by requiring registration from companies with two or more motor carriers, regardless of whether they are located across state lines. This registration gives legal permission for Missouri highway enforcement officers and other law enforcement agencies to issue tickets or warnings if a vehicle is found in violation of laws and regulations. By using a unified registration system, Missouri's regulatory agency ensures fairness for all interstate and intrastate motor carriers who use Missouri’s state-operated highways.
Missouri business owners that use commercial trucks need to be aware of the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT). This taxation requirement was created by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and applies to all commercial motorists that operate a truck with a gross weight over 55,000 pounds. Missouri truckers must pay this tax if they own any truck used for interstate commerce as classed by the IRS. The 2290 HVUT is essential for Missouri business owners to understand and stay compliant. All truckers must obtain a stamped Schedule-1 from the IRS within 180 days of registering their vehicles or be liable for further penalties and interest charges.
