Why Is A Biennial Update Important?

All entitles under FMCSA jurisdiction must update their information every two years. Any time there is a change in detail such as an addition of a truck or tractor, the carrier or another regulated entity must submit biennial updates to the FMCSA. Furthermore, failure to comply with the biennial update requirements will result in penalties and USDOT number deactivation. You may be entitled to a $1,000 fine every day you do not do it and at the $10,000 mark, you will face revocation.
