A new SAFER website is coming soon!

Effective August 1, 2023, FMCSA will no longer accept requests from entities to un-dismiss their operating authority application. This will allow FMCSA to review new applications to ensure they are fit, willing, and able to comply with Federal regulations and laws. If an entity’s application was dismissed after January 1, 2022, it can submit a request for un-dismissal through July 31, 2023. Beginning August 1, 2023, if your application is dismissed, you will need to submit a new application and pay the appropriate fee ($300 per type of operating authority requested).

*Please note:* A dismissal is the equivalent of a rejection and the only cure is either (1) an appeal, because you have evidence that insurance was actually filed, or (2) to file a new application.

Mailing application forms to FMCSA may delay the registration process. Instead, we recommend using these options:

  1. Upload forms through our website at: (scroll to the bottom of the page, complete the required fields, and upload your documents), you will receive a confirmation number by email; or
  2. Via fax to 202-366-3477

** ALERT ** The online PIN request system is temporarily unavailable. However, you may still request a PIN to be sent by mail to the mailing address on file. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.


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 the link below:
