You've made the decision to become a motor carrier. Carriers are essential workers and the backbone of the economy, because nothing moves without you. It's also one of the best ways to become a business owner.
But it's important to know that getting started in trucking is more than just buying a truck and hitting the road. Whether you plan to be an over-the-road trucker or use vehicles as part of other work for your business, you need the right authority and credentials to comply with the industry's rules and regulations.

For-hire carriers use vehicles to transport people or property that are not part of the carrier's business, and charge for the service. The fee could be a direct fee, like a fare or rate, but could also be other indirect forms of compensation.
Examples of for-hire operations include a trucking company that hauls other people's property for a fee or a bus company that charges people for rides.
A private carrier transports only its goods or people in a non-transportation-related business venture.
Examples include a manufacturer that uses its own commercial motor vehicles to transport its products or a construction or landscaping company that uses commercial vehicles to transport equipment and employees to job sites.
