New DOT requirements effective June 30, 2009
Washington state law now requires commercial motor vehicles to have an intra-state DOT number.  The number will be used to track the owner and the vehicle's safety fitness rating.  Owners of any vehicle that meets the definition of a commercial motor vehicle must register through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).  Obtaining a DOT number is free.
