Texas DOT Number Filing Services Overview

A Texas Department of Transportation number (TxDOT) is a number specifically issued for commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) in Texas. Operators that have obtained a TxDOT number are required to have it displayed in a visible location on the registered vehicle. The similarities between a TxDOT number and a USDOT number are common, but they very different. Let Federal Carrier help you navigate the complexity of DOT Compliance today, regardless of the state you reside in.


Do I Need a TxDOT / TxDMV Number?

It is a requirement that Carriers who operate an INTRA-state commercial vehicle in the state of Texas, to register for a TxDOT number. Due to this application, you are required to pay a fee. Your insurance company will file a Form E for the amount and if you have paid your fees to TxDMV, a UIN (Unique Identification Number) will be issued to you.

You are required to obtain a TxDOT Number if you:

  • Operate/Own a vehicle (or combination of vehicles) with a gross weight, registered weight or gross-weight rating exceeding 26,000 pounds
  • Operate a farm vehicle with a gross weight registered weight or gross weight rating of 48,000 pounds or more
  • Transport hazardous materials in a quantity that requires placarding
  • Operate a vehicle designed to transport more than 15 passengers, including the driver
  • Operate a commercial school bus
  • Transport household goods for compensation, regardless of vehicle weight

A carrier certificate of registration is non-transferable between carriers that register as a sole proprietor, therefore cannot be interchanged.


How Long Does it Take To Get my TxDOT Number?

The initial application submission review takes around 24-48 business hours. For any carrier that has had a previous authority/certificate or has been linked in any way with another authority/certificate, add an additional 7 business days to the review time.
