STATE REGULATIONS & Interstate Trucking Regulations

Before beginning new or expanded interstate operations, you must contact the appropriate regulatory agencies in all states in and through which you will conduct business to obtain information regarding state rules applicable to interstate motor operations.  It is your responsibility to comply with registration, fuel tax, and other state regulations and procedures.

Transportation agencies in 38 states register interstate authorities under the single state registration system (SSRS).  Under the SSRS, as an interstate motor carrier you may register your operation by contacting your base state (principal place of business) and, for one fee, register for all states in which operations will be conducted.  If your home state does not participate in the SSRS, you may contact a neighboring state and declare that state your “base” for registration purposes. State SSRS contacts are listed below.

Fuel taxes are levied by the individual states. For more information you must contact the state agency which handles fuel taxes.

Worker compensation is another area regulated by the individual states.  Rules regarding workers’ compensation vary greatly from state to state.  You may find it useful to contact the state insurance board for the state in which your business is located.  The respective insurance boards should be able to furnish you with detailed information on workers’ compensation rules and regulations.  These offices normally are located in the state capital and their telephone numbers may be obtained from the state government section of telephone directories, on the web or through local telephone information operators.

USEFUL ADDRESSES AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS FOR STATE AGENCIES

Following is a list of state motor carrier regulatory bodies.  Additionally, the address and telephone number for SSRS information is included for those 38 states that participate in the program (asterisk denotes participating state).  Should you have difficulty reaching a particular state office, consult your local telephone directory, search the web, or call the state government information operator.
