Request a PIN Number


FMCSA issues two types of PINs:

  • The USDOT Number PIN received at registration may be requested from FMCSA if it is lost or forgotten
  • The MC Number (Docket) PINs are automatically supplied with your MC Number and can only be requested by calling FMCSA Customer Service at 800-832-5660

The USDOT Number PIN can now be requested online and delivered in one of two ways:

You can also access this feature by going to and then clicking on the “Click here to request a USDOT Number PIN be emailed” prompt or "Click here to request a USDOT Number PIN be mailed to the address on file."

How Long Will It Take by Mail?

Please allow 7-10 business days to receive it by mail. It will be mailed to the mailing address on file with the FMCSA.
