How can I find out if my operating authority (active MC number) has been issued (granted)? Can I request a copy?

To check whether your operating authority has been issued (granted), go to the Licensing and Insurance website.

See the bold heading “FMCSA Searches”

  • Click on “Licensing & Insurance”
  • Enter MC Number or USDOT Number in the appropriate box and click “search”
  • Click “HTML”
  • Scroll to bottom and click on “Authority History.” This page will display the granted date of the operating authority

Normally, operating authority documents are sent out within 3-4 business days. If 10 or more business days have passed since the grant date and you have not yet received the operating authority document, call 800-832-5660 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time for assistance.
