After you get your application approved by FMCSA and get assigned a unique USDOT number, you will need to place your assigned USDOT number on your commercial vehicle. A lot of first-time applicants believe that they will be receiving a sticker decal to their registered address, but this is not the case. You will need to order your own physical decal and place it yourself on your vehicle. You can order your USDOT number decal from us (the experts in USDOT Truck Lettering) or a local sign shop. Keep in mind that local sign shops will charge a ridiculous amount since they are normally busy.
A few things to keep in mind when ordering your custom USDOT number decal,
- Your USDOT number must be at least 2 inches in height
- It must be on both sides of your commercial vehicle
- It must be visible from a distance of at least 50 feet
- It must contrast with the color of your vehicle
