Over Sized / Weight Permit
PLEASE NOTE: This is only Ace Licensing's filing fee. State fee's will
apply on a state to state basis. You will be contacted by one of our compliance
agents shortly after the order has been placed to go over your state needs and
to collect the necessary information for your load.
Temporary oversize/overweight (over-dimensional permits) are available to
facilitate the transportation of loads exceeding legal dimensions. Since these
permits are issued for short duration's careful planning is required.
Permits are issued for a specific time frame after which they expire and are
null and void.
Permits will only be valid after approval from the state(s) from which they
have been applied for. A copy of an application for a permit will not be
honored under any normal operating circumstance. A separate permit must be
secured for each state in which you will be conducting operations transporting
an oversize/overweight load.
If you have a blanket over-dimensional permit issued by a state(s) be sure the
dimensions of your load (including weight) do not exceed that for which the
blanket permit is issued. Transport of oversize/overweight loads may only be
conducted in the state for which the blanket permit was issued and only under
the conditions and dimensions as noted on such a permit.
Some states may require insurance filings before issuing your permit, such
information will be provided as part of this application process and in an
email you will receive after completing this application.
DOT Update or Biannual Report (MCS-150)
Any time a carrier or other regulated entity changes its name or address, or other details in their record, they should update their US DOT and operating authority record with FMCSA in a timely manner. In addition, FMCSA requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years:
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires all entities under its jurisdiction to update their information every two years. You are required to provide this update every two years even if your company has not changed its information, has ceased interstate operations since the last update, or is no longer in business and you did not notify FMCSA.
Failure to complete a Biennial Update will result in deactivation of your USDOT number and may result in civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.
Filing schedule: Each motor carrier or intermodal equipment provider must file the appropriate form at the following times:
- Before it begins operations; and
- Every 24 months according to the following schedule:

If the next-to-last digit of its USDOT Number is odd, the motor carrier or intermodal equipment provider shall file its update in every odd-numbered calendar year. If the next-to-last digit of the USDOT Number is even, the motor carrier or intermodal equipment provider shall file its update in every even-numbered calendar year.
Change of Authority (MC in Pending Status)
If a for-hire carrier, broker, freight forwarder or other regulated entity applies for the wrong type of operating authority, or changes the type of business they do, they may need to request a change of operating authority type.
If the original application is still pending, the entity can request the change for only $95.00. If the application has already been granted, the carrier will need to pay an additional $300 fee to apply for a new authority.
