What Permits Are Required for Virginia?

  • DOT Number

    Virginia commercial trucking companies will need to register for a US Department of Transportation number, more commonly referred to as a DOT number. This registration process is required in Virginia and applies to all motor carriers within the state that are engaged in interstate commerce. Beyond Virginia, this process ensures the safety of the commercial trucking industry across the United States by providing a means for regulating commercial vehicles; it also serves as an identification tool for any enforcement agency or research party who wishes to review data on Virginia’s commercial trucking operators or vehicles. Ultimately, obtaining a Virginia DOT number can help Virginia's commercial trucking companies comply with federal regulations and remain successful within their industry.

  • Federal MC Authority

    Virginia's commercial trucking industry is under the purview of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which requires motor carriers to be issued a valid MC number. This federal government certification demonstrates that Virginia interstate motor carriers meet FMCSA safety, insurance, and other standards to operate in Virginia and beyond. Requiring this MC number helps ensure Virginia residents have safe and reliable transportation services across the state, while keeping Virginia’s roads safe for everyone using them. With this in mind, Virginia motor carriers can apply for their MC number with the FMCSA through an easy-to-follow process for basic authority or additional endorsements depending on their service needs.

  • BOC-3 Filing

    Virginia is one of many states that require certain commercial trucking companies to complete a special federal filing known as a BOC-3. This filing is designed to ensure that financial accountability exists for these trucking companies and their drivers, in the event of an accident or other incident. A BOC-3 filing must be completed by a Virginia company in order for it to attain operational authority from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Without this filing, Virginia commercial trucking companies won't have the ability to transport items across state lines. That's why making sure all Virginia commercial trucking companies have fulfilled their BOC-3 filing requirements is so important.

  • UCR Filing

    Virginia's Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) filing system enables Virginia-based commercial trucking fleets, along with many other interstate businesses, to easily meet all US Department of Transportation requirements for motor carrier and municipality operations. The process allows Virginia fleets to register their vehicles quickly and efficiently, attaining a single identification number that is good throughout the United States. Whether you own a single vehicle or an entire fleet of commercial trucks, Virginia's unified carrier registration filing system can simplify your paperwork load and help ensure that you are in compliance with current regulations.

  • 2290 HVUT

    Virginia truckers who participate in commercial trucking must pay the 2290 Heavy Vehicle Use Tax, or HVUT. This tax is administered by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and applies to several Virginia vehicles that are used for business purposes, such as transporting goods from Virginia to another state. The tax rate varies from vehicle to vehicle and is based on the gross weight of the vehicle. When the Virginia business registers their Virginia-based trucks, they must file Form 2290 with the IRS and pay their 2290 heavy vehicle use tax annually. This annual tax helps ensure Virginia truckers support Virginia infrastructure while also contributing to federal programs nationwide.
