What is a California CA number?
CA number is a unique number assigned by the California Highway Patrol. It helps the CHP to identify a carrier. California Based motor carriers are required to have a California CA number. According to Department of Motor vehicles, a motor carrier permit is a document issued by the DMV’s Registration Operations Division. The permit is issued by the motor carrier as evidence of the registration with the DMV of their Carrier Identification number (CA#), as required by CVC Section 34620.
Additionally, the permit verifies the motor carrier has met all of the statutory requirements to commercially operate motor vehicles on California’s highways. The permit contains information specific to the motor carrier (e.g., name, mailing address, CA#, and effective/expiration dates of the permit).
