Undismiss Authority

“Undismiss Authority” sounds worse than it is. It simply means you already applied for Operating Authority but never followed through with it.

Are you ready to activate your authority but the FMCSA “dismissed” it?

What does the status “dismissed” mean?  It simply means your authority was never activated, usually due to lack of insurance.

Undimiss Authority Steps:
The next steps to activate your authority AND keep your MC and USDOT numbers is as follows:

  1. Make sure your USDOT is active.  Click here to check your USDOT snapshot.  If it’s inactive an MCS-150 will need to be completed and sent in to the USDOT.  This is nothing to worry about as we will take care of the paperwork on your behalf.
  2. Contact your Insurance Agent to have your insurance/bond electronically submitted with the FMCSA.
  3. Pay the required $300.00 to reactivate the operating authority. We will handle this on your behalf as well.

We will make sure your USDOT is active, address & contact information is correct, and file the request for the Un-Dismissal with the FMCSA and pay the $300.00 filing fee.

Once your account is placed  back into a pending status then it goes through normal channels as if it were new. Expect 1-2 weeks for activation.
