To drive loads from one state to another, truckers must apply for and receive an Interstate Authority, also called an Interstate Carrier Authority or Interstate Operating Authority. Combined with a Motor Carrier Authority, Owner Operators who have their own Interstate Authority are truly independent. You can work directly with shippers and brokers to choose the loads are routes YOU want, rather than the other way around, and you can conduct business all over the country. This is a big step in establishing your own trucking business and creating new opportunities for career growth, and we want to help you get there!

In just a few minutes, Contractor Business Services can get your authority application filed online with the FMCSA and get you on the road in no time. Some authority websites claim that they can provide your MCA immediately—NOT TRUE! If a website says this, they are trying to get your business with untrustworthy claims and you will be disappointed. The reality is this: In most cases, we can get your MCA number the same day as you file the application, but it usually takes 2-3 weeks to be approved by the FMSCA. You must wait to be approved before you can drive legally, and this process cannot be expedited. We want you to know the facts of the situation so that you can be prepared !
