What Permits Are Needed for Delaware?

  • DOT Number

    DOT (Department of Transportation) number is a unique identifier assigned to commercial trucking companies in Delaware and across the country. The primary purpose of this number is to help track safety records and any violations committed while operating on public roadways. Having a DOT number shows other operators on the road that the company has met all legal requirements for commercial trucking operation in Delaware and across the country.

  • Federal MC Authority

    Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is an agency of the US Department of Transportation responsible for commercial trucking authority. One crucial component of this authority, that is often overlooked, is the Motor Carrier (MC) number issued by the FMCSA. After FMCSA approves and issues an MC number, that company can then legally operate across all state lines as a commercial motor carrier. The MC number allows motor carriers to legally and safely transport goods throughout the country, while doing their part to ensure safety on US roads. Without the issuance of an MC number from FMCSA, commercial trucking operations would be limited to the state of Delaware.

  • BOC-3 Filing

    Commerical trucking requires organizations to complete a 'BOC-3' filing, which is a federal regulatory requirement. The BOC-3 is actually the long-form name for the 'Proper Person Form' and it needs to be filed in all states where the corporation or LLC will hold authority. While filing copies can differ slightly from state to state, Delaware’s requirements are seen as particularly stringent and must include a list of names and addresses for service of process agents in Delaware, who can accept legal documents on behalf of the company or entity registered for Commercial Motor Carrier if necessary. Since its introduction, this mandatory federal filing has become a standard part of commercial trucking registration protocol.

  • UCR Filing

    Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filings provide a streamlined, centralized way for commercial trucking businesses to register vehicles operating in Delaware and other states. UCR allows carriers to obtain the necessary credentials with one filing, covering all individual jurisdictions while avoiding charges from each state. The annual registration program requires any commercial fleet involved in interstate trucking in Delaware to register their vehicles. UCR also seeks to ensure uniform safety standards across commercial fleet operations.

  • 2290 HVUT

    For commercial vehicle owners who operate in Delaware and over the federal highways, 2290 heavy vehicle use tax (HVUT) is a requirement to maintain legal compliance. 2290 HVUT is a tax imposed annually by the IRS on any commercial trucking vehicles with gross taxable weights greater than 55,000 pounds. This mandated fee helps maintain the federal highway system and ensure the safety of other motorists who share the roads. The 2290 HVUT rate is determined by the weight of your heavyweight vehicle and must be paid for each registered vehicle before it can be used on public roads.
