USDOT a unique number that help to keep track of your DOT number compliance
The FMCSA, also known as the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, created a unique number system and named it DOT number or USDOT number, This number helps the FMCSA to keep information about every driver that is required to have such number.
Also, It is the sole responsibility of each driver to research and find out if they need to have a USDOT number based on their operation. Factors such as the weight of the track, what it carries and to where it drives will determine if a USDOT number must be obtained.
