DOT requires every Interstate Authorized For Hire Carrier operating under their own operating authority have a current BOC-3 form on file with the office of motor carrier safety. The BOC-3 form is a list of registered process agents for each state, who, in the event of a legal action being presented against the motor carrier by an individual or legal entity from outside the carrier’s base state, would accept the papers being served on the carrier’s behalf and would then forward them to the carrier being served. A BOC-3 must be filed with FMCSA before operating authority is granted.
Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul types and quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number.
Every motor carrier must maintain a driver qualification file for each driver it employs. You will download a Driver Application for Employment with instructions for filling out the form. After completing the form, you send it back to our company. Then we will exchange the information with you and build a DOT Compliant Driver Qualification File.
This is required if you operate a commercial motor vehicle that:
(1) Has a gross combination weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds inclusive of a towed unit with a gross vehicle rating of more than 10,000 pounds; or
(2) Has a gross vehicle weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds; or
(3) Is designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver; or
(4) Is of any size and is used in the transportation of materials found to be hazardous for the purposes of the Hazardous Material Transportation Act (49 USC 5103(b)) and which require the motor vehicle to be placarded under the Hazardous Material Regulations (49 CFR part 172, subpart F).
Enrollment is for 12 months per driver and includes the cost of random drug tests.
Collection fees may apply to random alcohol tests and other tests performed throughout the year.
Complete the Enrollment Form and return to our company with the information about the driver to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 866-562-7550.
Upon completion of enrollment, we will send you a Controlled Substance Policy, Letter of Participation and other educational material.
Drivers subject to the Drug Program Requirements must take and pass a drug screen before being allowed to drive. If you do not have a drug screen, you should order the Drug Screen with the Drug Program Enrollment
