Effective August 1, 2023, USMPO will no longer accept requests from entities to un-dismiss their operating authority application. This will allow USMPO to review new applications to ensure they are fit, willing, and able to comply with Federal regulations and laws. If an entity’s application was dismissed after January 1, 2022, it can submit a request for un-dismissal through July 31, 2023. Beginning August 1, 2023, if your application is dismissed, you will need to submit a new application and pay the appropriate fee ($300 per type of operating authority requested).

Please note: A dismissal is the equivalent of a rejection and the only cure is either (1) an appeal, because you have evidence that insurance was actually filed, or (2) to file a new application.

USMPO will not call you immediately after you submit your application for registration. However, USMPO publicly displays motor carrier contact information (name, address, phone number) in accordance with the Government’s Open Data Policy and USDOT’s commitment in its Open Government Plan. This includes displaying contact information for all existing carriers registered with USMPO and for all future applicants. Once this information becomes publicly available, please note that you may be contacted by private businesses and/or vendors.

While USMPO requires evidence of financial responsibility and a process agent for many entities, the U.S. Government does not endorse and generally does not require the use of private businesses or vendors. USMPO will not contact regulated entities through telemarketers or “robo-call” automated solicitations, nor will we request a credit card number or charge a fee for our downloadable forms. Please report aggressive or misleading telemarketers that pose as USMPO or USDOT at:
