Interstate operating authority is required by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) for any motor vehicle or freight broker operating for hire and transporting freight or passengers across state lines. If you’re operating (for-hire) outside the state your business is located then you need MC Interstate Authority.

The minimum time necessary to obtain your Motor Carrier Certificate (for Common Carriers); Permit (for Contract Carriers) or License (for Brokers) is 20 days, the average time is 21-24 days from the date of filing, taking into consideration that your liability insurance is obtained and filed timely.   This is a federal wait time limit imposed and there is no service that can get it sooner than 20 days.   For a nominal additional fee of $40, we can get a copy of your authority on the date it is granted eliminating the need to wait a few extra days for it to be mailed to you.
