The FMCSA Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) System offers company safety data and related services to industry and the public over the Internet. Users can search FMCSA databases, register for a USDOT number, pay fines online, order company safety profiles, challenge FMCSA data using the DataQs system, access the Hazardous Material Route registry, obtain National Crash and Out of Service rates for Hazmat Permit Registration, get printable registration forms and find information about other FMCSA Information Systems.

In recognition of the President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America and following the Department's guidance to take all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of the USDOT workforce, FMCSA has reassessed the safety of having registration application forms mailed to the Agency. Any mail, including forms, that was sent to FMCSA on or after Friday, March 13, may not be processed in a timely manner. Please resend them via fax or web form as directed below:

  • Web form: (select email at the top of the page)
  • Fax: (202) 366-3477

For Registration and Licensing forms that are submitted via the web form, the applicant will receive a confirmation number by email.

April 27, 2020 PIN Consolidation: FMCSA has consolidated the USDOT, MC & MX PINs into one USDOT PIN. This effort has eliminated the MC and MX PINs. FMCSA systems must now be accessed using your USDOT PIN only.

If you do not have your USDOT PIN or need to reset it, please visit our PIN request website:


The updating of a specific USDOT Number requires the use of a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to access the system.

If your PIN is not known, you may request one be provided by selecting one of the following options:
