Why was my operating authority application dismissed? How can I have it “undismissed?”

If insurance and Form BOC-3 are not filed approximately 120 days from the date of filing of the application, then the application will be dismissed. If the FMCSA has dismissed your application for operating authority, it is because the process of obtaining authority was not completed and your operating authority was never granted. 

To have your operating authority undismissed you must:

  • Be in compliance with insurance and Form BOC-3 requirements
  • Fax a written request for undismissal to 202-366-3477, ATTN: Licensing
  • Include the following information:
    • Company MC number
    • Company name
    • Statement requesting that your operating authority be undismissed

An undismissal request will be considered within one year from the dismissal date.
