What is a Texas Certificate?
- A Texas Certificate is similar to a US DOT number except it is just for Texas.
If you are based in Texas and you are planning to haul freight as either an Interstate or Intrastate Carrier, and you operate a vehicle designed or used to transport cargo that has a gross weight, registered weight, or combined gross weight rating of greater than 26,000 you must have both a Texas Certificate and a US DOT number. This Texas Certificate is issued by the Texas DOT.
