Motor Carrier Permit application

All Motor Carrier Permit (MCP) applicants must complete this application, in its entirety, pay the required fees, provide required information regarding enrollment in mandated programs, provide and maintain liability insurance at the required level on the required form, and provide workers’ compensation insurance on the required form if you are subject to California’s workers’ compensation laws.
Effective January 1, 2016, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will begin collecting the Carrier Inspection Fee (CIF) in conjunction with the base fees upon original application and renewal of an MCP, per Revenue and Taxation Code (R&TC) Sections 7236 (a) (1) and (2) (B). Base fees include the Safety Fee and Uniform Business License Tax (UBLT). The CIF replaces the Biennial Inspection of Terminal fees. The CIF will not be apportioned or prorated. R&TC Section 7236 (d) requires DMV to assess delinquency fees for late payment of fees due. Delinquency fees will continue to accrue until ALL fees are paid and ALL fees must be paid to obtain an MCP.
Under the new Basic Inspection of Terminals (BIT) program, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) will select terminals for inspection based on available carrier performance data or the commodity transported, rather than the prior time-based mandate of once every 25 months.
