How does this help you?

  • Enforcement personnel in other states can tell if you are prorated and current on your registration by running your plate number, VIN number, and/or USDOT number.
  • If an accident occurs, the company information is passed onto the Enforcement personnel.

What does this mean to you?

  • MCS will be requesting updated Contact Information on the company.
  • MCS will be requesting the phone number on the vehicle level for the owner of the vehicle, not who is responsible for the safety of the vehicle.
