Watch How to Get Your DOT Authority

We Want to See You Succeed in Trucking

When it comes to getting your DOT authority, we do more than anyone else to make sure you are successful. With every trucking authority or motor carrier permit we help set up, we provide our MC authority getting started guide for free, a $49.00 value. Our guide is a simple booklet that helps you understand the rules you need to follow to stay in compliance with all DOT requirements. Problems following DOT regulations is one of the biggest reasons trucking companies with a new motor carrier authority and owner operators go out of business.

Our guide and the other services we provide help make DOT compliance a breeze. If you are sitting on the fence and are unsure if business ownership is right for you, read our post about how you can succeed with your own trucking company for some additional motivation. You can also call us at (866) 736-6507 to get started.

We Customize Your Solution

Every person’s situation is unique, so we make sure we understand your goals and help you develop a plan to meet them. We spend as much time going over each step as you would like, answering all your questions, something most of our competitors do not do.

We offer complete transparency as part of our motor carrier registration process. If you want to learn more about what you need to get your trucking authority, check out our post on what you need to start a trucking company.

Get Started Right, Business Structure

Most people believe applying for your motor carrier permit is the first thing they need to do. Although that is an important step, you first need to think about protecting your personal assets, like your home and bank accounts, and making sure you have the most favorable tax structure by incorporating or organizing a Limited Liability Company (LLC). Those steps must be taken first so you apply for your US DOT number, MC number, and motor carrier authority with the correct business name and structure, so you don’t incur extra costs by having to redo or change things later down the road.

The Second Step, Applying for Your Operating Authority

We apply for a DOT number for you and make the MC number application process easy. Our New Motor Carrier Authority Package includes all of the following:

  • MC Number
  • US DOT Number
  • BOC-3 Process Agent Filing
  • Our Getting Started Guide (A $49.00 Value)
  • Teaching and training from our staff leading you every step of the way and taking the time with you to answer all of your questions about your FMCSA Registration

I was looking online for some helping getting my Hotshot auto-hauling company started when I came across Progressive Reporting Agency.  I called several places, and they were competitively priced and I was impressed by their responsiveness and knowledge so I decided to go with them.  Over the years, I have worked with many different companies that provide similar services and Progressive Reporting is top notch.  They worked diligently to get me set up quickly and have always been eager to help, even after they completed the work I paid them for.

I saw a YouTube video for Progressive Reporting and all the services they offer, which happen to be all the services I was looking for in a one stop shop type deal. I’m glad I went with them. All the red tape you have to go through to apply for your own authority is nothing for these guys. They know what to do and when and where, no hassle or headache, they do it all for you. With Progressive Reporting helping me it was smooth and easy… If you’re looking for a company to help you with your trucking company, I highly recommend them.

I had a goal of starting my own trucking company for some time, but was nervous about all the regulations I couldn’t possibly know about. So when I came across the YouTube video explaining Progressive Reporting Agency’s process, I knew this was the company to go with. Tyler explained everything in appropriate detail and followed up with me when I had questions. I am very satisfied with the service and overall sense of caring that Progressive Reporting has shown me.

We had no idea how to get our trucking company started. A friend referred us to Progressive Reporting Agency and they have been fantastic to work with. They broke everything down so we knew exactly what we needed to do and how much it was going to cost. Once we decided to move forward, they took care of everything and it was a smooth process. Now that we are going, the customer service continues to be great, they are always willing to help and educate me, no matter how many times I call. Thanks for being such an honest company.
