Indiana Operating Authority
Those that transport passengers or household goods for hire must apply for Indiana Operating Authority. Because there are several types of operating authorities (permanent, temporary, and emergency), it is important to review the options, requirements, and applications.
All incomplete applications for passenger and household goods will be returned. If there are any issues once we receive the complete application, we will return the application for corrections. Once corrections have been made, return the entire completed and corrected application. You must schedule an appointment if you would like to visit our walk-in customer service center to set up your account.
