ARIZONA DOT NUMBER:  When you are required to register for an Arizona DOT number, call us at (765) 742-2610. If you have a vehicle with a GVWR - Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 18,001 lbs or greater (Arizona DOT, AZ DOT, DOT State AZ US, DOT Arizona, DOT AZ, and AZ DOT Number), you are required to have an Arizona DOT Number.  When you look on the doorframe of your vehicle, you should see a chrome tag with the letters GVWR and a number. This is the maximum weight the vehicle is designed to weigh. You are required to register for an Arizona DOT number (Arizona DOT, AZ DOT, DOT State AZ US, DOT Arizona, DOT AZ, and AZ DOT Number) on a vehicle used in your business on a commercial basis such as a pickup truck, a van, a truck or a vehicle pulling a trailer where the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is 18,001-lbs or more, or the Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Ratings (GCWR) of both the power unit and the trailer is 18,001-lbs or more, when the vehicle or vehicles remain in the state. We will register you with Arizona for an Arizona DOT number (Arizona DOT, AZ DOT, DOT State AZ US, DOT Arizona DOT AZ, and AZ DOT number) for your business operation. If the truck is plated above 26,000-lbs, or the truck and trailer combination / semi-tractor and trailer loaded weights are more than 26,000-lbs, you will be required to register for the state fuel tax. Click on the state fuel tax phone number down the left side of this page. When you cross state lines with a commercial vehicle with a GVWR of 10,001-lbs or more, or a commercial vehicle and trailer with a GCWR of 10,001-lbs or more, a USDOT number is required. Call us to get either an Arizona DOT number (Arizona DOT, AZ DOT, DOT State AZ US, DOT Arizona, DOT AZ, AZ DOT Number) or a USDOT number to cross state lines. When you cross state lines and your truck is plated 26,001-lbs or greater, or your truck and trailer combination weigh 26,001-lbs or greater when loaded, or your semi-tractor and trailer weigh 26,001-lbs or greater when loaded, you will be required to register with the state for IFTA fuel tax. If your vehicle or power unit and trailer gross 26,001-lbs or more when crossing state lines, read more about crossing state lines below.  Again, the reference is for an Arizona DOT Number, Arizona DOT, AZ DOT, DOT State AZ US, DOT Arizona, DOT AZ and AZ DOT number.

Arizona DOT Number Operational Categories Summary
ARIZONA  DOT Number Requirements
Please Note
1. When applying for a DOT number, 'Carrier' is the designation assigned to the applicant, whether a Person, Business or a Company that operates a vehicle or vehicles that either belong to them, or are being leased by them. A 'Registrant' is an 'Owner' of a truck that is leased to a trucking company and operates under that trucking company's name and DOT number and, usually, MC number. Registrants are paid by trucking companies to haul loads and Registrants are not are not issued DOT numbers. When operating a commercial vehicle, you are either a 'Registrant' or a 'Carrier'. When applying for a DOT number, whether you have a van, pickup truck, full size truck, box truck, flatbed truck or semi-tractor, you are assigned the term 'Carrier'. As far as the DOT is concerned, you are a 'Carrier', whether you are a 'Private Carrier' driving a pickup truck and servicing the oil rigs in Texas or North Dakota, or as an owner of an 80,000-lbs semi-tractor and trailer running willy-nilly all over the country as a 'For-Hire Carrier'.  You will be a 'Carrier'
2.  If you are hauling, transporting or working exclusively within the state of Alabama without crossing state lines, then the 'In State' categories shown in the tables below apply to your operation. Your DOT number will show that you are an Intrastate Carrier.
3.  If you are hauling or transporting loads or items across state lines ONLY and never hauling or transporting loads or items from one point in Alabama to another point in Alabama, then 'Crossing State Lines' applies to your opearation and your DOT number will show you are an Interstate Carrier.
4.  If you are hauling or transporting from one point in Alabama to another point in Alabama AND you are occasionally crossing state lines, or crossing state lines on a regular basis, then you need to look at both the 'In-State' requirements and the 'Crossing State Lines' requirements. If you are a 'For-Hire' Carrier, then you may end up getting a DOT (USDOT) number, State Authority to operate within Alabama, and Federal Authority to cross state lines with loads. If you cross state lines just once with your commercial vehicle, you are an 'Interstate Carrier'. This would not apply if you are purchasing a vehicle in one state, crossing state lines to bring the vehicle home to Alabama and then operate exclusively within Alabama. While you do this, you are not strictly operating 'In Commerce', you are merely transporting the vehicle back to Alabama, your state of operation.
5.  Service Contractors or Contractors hauling their own tools or equipment within the state of Alabama or across state lines are referred to as 'Private Carriers'.
6.  If you are a contractor who does concrete work, as an example, then you would be considered a 'Private Carrier' because you are getting paid to provide a service job. If you pick up a load of gravel, transport that gravel, dump it and get paid for transporting the gravel, then leave without doing anything further with that gravel, you would be considered a 'For Hire' Carrier. You would be considered a 'For-Hire Carrier' because someone hired you to transport the gravel and do nothing else with the gravel. You can be both a 'Private Carrier' and a 'For Hire Carrier', but if you do any 'For-Hire Carrier' work, then you must register as a 'For Hire Carrier' (if that's required by the state. Check the listings below to see if you are required to register as an In-State, For-Hire Carrier ).
