Motorcoach operators can now complete the application for a USDOT number more quickly.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration set up an electronic process that allows motor carriers applying online for a USDOT number to receive their individual number instantly.
The process previously took up to four weeks to complete.
Carriers will need a valid Visa or MasterCard to act as a digital signature when applying for the USDOT number and to update electronically. There is no charge for filing online.
