Louisiana based interstate regulated carriers must file their FHWA authority and register with the LPSC, file application (RS-1), liability insurance (BMC91X) and agents of process (BOC-3) and carry a copy of annual SSRS registration receipt (RS-3) on board each vehicle for which fees were paid. A motor carrier may transfer its registration receipts or copies of the receipt from the vehicles taken out-of-service to their replacement vehicles.

Renewal for the SSRS Receipt is August 1 through November 30 each year. The SSRS Receipt is effective January 1 through December 31 each year. Registration fee is $10.00 per vehicle.
