Do you live in California?
If so and you driver a commercial vehicle over 10,000 lbs., you are required to have a CA number. This is required per the Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1996. The California Highway Patrol oversees this program and states if your company has active MC and DOT numbers, you do not have to display your CA number but you must still have one. You will be issued (1) CA number for your fleet. The CA number is good for the life of your business and is not required to be renewed annually.
