Unauthorized Passengers

The US Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration addresses unauthorized passengers in Subpart G, Prohibited Practices-§392.60 Unauthorized Person Not to Be Transported. Under federal safety rules for commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), passengers are not allowed on CMVs (except buses) unless they are specifically authorized by the motor carrier. When the motor carrier issues such an authorization, it must state the following:

  • Name of the person to be transported
  • Points where the transportation is to begin and end
  • Date when the authorization expires

The driver is not required to carry the authorization on board the vehicle. Written authorization is not required for the transportation of:

  • Persons assigned to the vehicle by the motor carrier
  • A person transported when aid is being rendered in an emergency
  • An attendant delegated to care for livestock
