USDOT Biennial Update: Maintaining Your FMCSA Registration

USDOT Biennial Updates are not only important; they are required by law. The FMCSA requires companies to update their USDOT information every two years. If they fail to comply, companies risk getting fined or losing their authority to operate.

 

What Is a USDOT Biennial Update?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years (biennially). Carriers must file their biennial update even if their company information has not changed, or if they have ceased interstate operations since their last update.

Some of the information included on a biennial update includes:

1. The name of the company.
2. The location of the company doing registration.
3. Registration information about operating procedures.
4. The number of vehicles in the fleet.
5. The number of drivers in the fleet.
6. Some other FMCSA biennial update registration information.

The process of filing and maintaining a biennial update can be overwhelming and confusing for motor carriers to navigate; that is why US Compliance Services offers a streamlined service to motor carriers. We will collect your pertinent information and file your biennial update on your behalf, giving you the peace of mind and freedom to focus on your company's operations.

 

Do I Need to Update My USDOT Number?

Absolutely. Trucking businesses must update the information associated with their DOT numbers every two years. That’s the reason that it’s called a “biennial” update. The sides of all trucks and registered motor carriers must display an assigned DOT (Department of Transportation) number. That number must updated on a biennial basis through a registration process with the FMCSA. Failure of registration can result in massive fines and penalties, as well as loss of your authority.
