Now that I have an active DOT number what do I need to do to keep my DOT number in compliance?

“To ensure your DOT number remains compliant with FMCSA regulations, it is essential to promptly update it whenever there are changes to your company’s name, address, phone number, or email address. Additionally, if you alter the number of trucks or drivers in your fleet, you must report these changes. Furthermore, it’s mandatory to file the MCS-150 form every two years. For detailed information on FMCSA filing requirements, please visit the MCS-150 Biennial Update page.
