Not everyone needs a DOT Number. If you are hauling hazardous material, or operating over 10,000 GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) and participating in "interstate commerce," you are required to have a DOT Number.

Interstate commerce has several qualifications including but not limited to leaving your state a certain amount of times, or traveling more than 100 miles from your domicile location more than a certain number of times.

States might have slightly different requirements to please check your state's requirements. Here is a link to the DOT website for additional information.

Your CSA score can impact many areas of your business. Shippers will check your CSA score before hiring you to gauge how reliable you will be to complete their deliveries. Insurance companies look at your CSA score and it does affect your insurance premiums. You should monitor your CSA score regularly. If you notice an error, there are procedures to follow to make corrections. Remember when your drivers are cited, that goes against your company's CSA score for 3 years so you want to hire the safest drivers you possibly can.
