We have set aside the two best ways to get your authority. You may choose to do it yourself, or use our partner GLauthority.com

The Steps to Do it Yourself

  1. Determine the type of operation authority
  2. Name your company and determine if you will classify as a sole proprietor, a partnership, or a corporation.
  3. Be approved for primary liability and cargo insurance.
  4. Make sure you have startup money for the authority filing fee, insurance, permits, base plates, equipment and enrollment in a drug/alcohol program.
  5. New entrant registration requires for-hire motor carriers to complete an OP-1(P) form, the BOC-3 form, and pay the Federal fee for authority of $300. (Private carriers are not required to file an OP-1 or BOC-3 or pay the fee)
  6. Complete the Motor Carrier Identification Report and Safety Certification Application for a USDOT number.
