DOT Biennial Update

Stay compliant with the DOT Biennial Update for uninterrupted carrier operations.

Are you staying up to date with the mandated DOT Biennial Update? The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all motor carriers to update their information every two years. Whether you operate as an interstate or intrastate motor carrier, it is crucial to file this update to maintain your authority and continue your carrier operations seamlessly.

Even if your business has experienced no significant changes since the last update, it is still necessary to file the biennial update. This ensures that your company remains in compliance with FMCSA regulations and allows you to carry out carrier operations without any interruptions.

The update must be submitted every two years, regardless of whether your company's information, fleet size, company name, address, or other details have changed. By adhering to this requirement, you demonstrate your commitment to maintaining accurate and up-to-date information with the authority.

To determine the specific filing year and month for your update, the odd-even method based on your DOT Number is employed. If the next-to-last digit of your DOT Number is odd, the update should be filed in odd-numbered calendar years. If it is even, the filing should occur in even-numbered calendar years. Additionally, the last digit of your DOT Number indicates the month when the update is due, with 1 representing January, 2 representing February, and 0 representing October.

Ensure compliance, maintain your authority, and keep your carrier operations running smoothly by filing the DOT Biennial Update as mandated. Let us assist you in navigating the process and meeting all necessary requirements to ensure a seamless experience.
