Mexico-Domiciled Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) - Advisory for Local Law Enforcement

  • FMCSA has initiated a United States-Mexico long-haul pilot program to demonstrate the ability of Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate safely in the United States beyond the municipalities and commercial zones on the United States-Mexico international border.
  • The pilot program allows approved Mexico-domiciled motor carriers to operate throughout the United States for up to 3 years and for U.S.-domiciled motor carriers to be granted reciprocal rights to operate in Mexico for the same period.
  • Participating Mexican carriers and drivers are required to comply with all applicable U.S. laws and regulations, including those concerned with motor carrier safety, customs, immigration, vehicle registration and fuel taxation.
