How long does it take to start up with own authority

I am getting ready to start out on my own. I have a truck and trailer that I am researching, and am close to taking next steps. I am wondering how long of a timeline I am looking at from the start of the paperwork, to having my authority, and being ready to be on the road.

Total time for DOT number fuel permit and authority was about between 3 and 4 weeks I did all this myself online but I can tell you the authority can be issued quicker if you use a third party for about 30 or 40 dollars

any suggestions on who to use? The quote I got was significantly higher than that


The DOT number I would do yourself it's very easy to do online.

What your looking for is BOC 3 agent and I see there about 25 to 30 dollars now I did this myself also but it was taking so long I thought I did something wrong so I found a BOC3 agent and 3 days after I contracted with agent my own authority that I filled out came through.
