Speaking of interstate and intrastate, can anyone tell me the difference in requirements between obtaining DOT registration numbers for intrastate versus interstate.

I have seen DOT numbers on trucks in New York where they have the two letters "NY" at the end of the number and was told these are the ones for intrastate only.

I'd assume there must be something easier about registering for intrastate, otherwise why not just go for the interstate registration. Could it be less insurance, no health card, or something like that? I don't know the answer(s).

Several years back NYS adopted the FMCSA rules in their entirety. The Legislature had no clue what they were doing, but there you have it. So, now all commercial vehicles in NY need to comply with FMCSA rules that apply to them. The DOT # is issued and ID's that vehicle as a intrastate unit. As far as I know, there is no cost for getting the number. I'm not aware of any costs that would be any lower since the same equipment and everything else is the same as for an interstate vehicle, except for IFTA and similar taxes.

I was a NYSP DOT Inspector for the last 6 years of my career. You aren't the first guy to wonder about this.

I'm not completely sure of the answer, butas a semi-retired CDL driver, I can suggest that the Interstate DOT registration does not necessarily include the Intrastate rights and privileges. Here in PA, interstate DOT registrations are only allowed to carry INTERstate freight to , from, or through PA. Intrastate registration allows transporting freight between points within the state.
