Also called a Biennial Update, an MCS-150 must be filed upon becoming a motor carrier and every two years after that. All first-time applicants must use the Unified Registration System to apply.
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.
You are required to file this update even if:
Failure to complete a Biennial Update results in deactivation of your USDOT number and may result in civil penalties of up to $1,000 per day, not to exceed $10,000.
We will file your MCS-150 for you automatically the first time and every two years after that. It is a simple thing you can forget about that can cost you $1,000’s .
