Once your MC or FF number is granted by the FMCSA, you will automatically be mailed a copy of your Authority Certificate. There is no fee for this copy and it generally takes 7-14 days to come by mail. If you order the Expedited Authority Certificate your will receive an official copy of your FMCSA License by email or fax the same day your MC or FF number goes active. You must have the certificate before you begin operations, so if you need to get started right away, the expedite is a great option.
If you need a copy of your certificate of Authority after you have completed a Legal Name Change with the FMCSA and DOT or if you have reactivated an authority after being placed inactive you will need to apply for a new Certificate of authority.
