Motor Vehicles are now considered to be a Class 9 HazMat. You do not need a HazMat endorsement on your drivers license or any HazMat permits. You will need a minimum of $1,000,000 liability insurance to transport Motor Vehicles.

Please keep in mind that while we can obtain your USDOT and MC numbers usually within 45 minutes, it will still take the FMCSA 18-21 calendar days for your MC number to become active. Your MC number must be active before you can start operations. Unfortunately, the 18-21 day time frame for MC number activation cannot be shortened.

The FMCSA no longer requires cargo insurance filings. Most companies you work for will require some amount of cargo insurance coverage, but it no longer needs to be filed with the FMCSA.
