The Department of Transportation (DOT) is the most common name for a government agency in North America devoted to transportation. The largest is the United States Department of Transportation, which oversees interstate transportation and is a federal agency. Interstate carriers are regulated through safety tracking numbers issued by FMCSA. Carriers may apply for a USDOT Number and/or operating authority (business license for for-hire carriers) online. All U.S. states, Canadian provinces, and many local agencies also have similar organizations and provide enforcement through DOT officers within their respective jurisdictions.
