Are you considering starting a trucking company in the sunny State of California? Any person paid to transport goods in the State of California is required to have a CA Number and Motor Carrier Permit to operate a motor vehicle.
In-state CA carriers were not required to have a USDOT number until 2016. Many out-of-state carriers must have the following three articles. Otherwise, they cannot enter the state of California:
A Motor Carrier Permit is a document issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles(DMV) Motor Carrier Services Branch. The permit is issued to the carrier as evidence of registration with the DMV of their Carrier Identification number (CA#), as required by CVC Section 34620. The permit verifies the carrier has met all of the requirements to operate commercial motor vehicles on California’s roads. The permit contains information specific to the carrier like name, mailing address, CA number, and effective/expiration dates of the permit.
Who Does NOT Need an MCP?
The Carrier Identification number (CA#) (Also known as a California DOT Number) is issued exclusively by the California Highway Patrol as part of their Biennial Inspection of Terminals (BIT) Program and is used as the Motor Carrier Permit number. Not all motor carriers who require a motor carrier permit need to participate in the BIT Program.
