Did You Know…As a motor carrier, recent Vehicle Miles Travelled (VMT) and Power
Unit (PU) data from your Motor Carrier Registration form, known as the MCS-150,
are required and must be up to date to properly assess your level of exposure in
the Unsafe Driving and Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement
Categories (BASICs) in FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System (SMS).

If your VMT data in FMCSA’s database is from 2010 or older, it will not be used
in your calculations when the January SMS snapshot is posted at the beginning of
February. Instead, the level of exposure will default to average PUs over the previous
18 months which can impact your percentiles in the Unsafe Driving and Crash Indicator
BASICs. View the SMS Methodology for addition details on BASIC percentile calculations.

Reminder Commercial Motor Carriers: Update your VMT and PU data now!

Did You Know…As a motor carrier, your Vehicle Miles Travelled (VMT) and Power Unit (PU) data from your Motor Carrier Registration form, known as the MCS-150, are used to calculate your Unsafe Driving and Crash Indicator Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Category (BASIC) percentiles.

If your VMT data is 2009 or older, it will not be used in your calculations when the January Safety Measurement System (SMS) snapshot is posted at the beginning of February.

Update your MCS-150 now with your 2010 or 2011 VMT/PU data to ensure FMCSA is using the most accurate data available to calculate your percentiles.

Visit https://li-public.fmcsa.dot.gov/LIVIEW/PKG_REGISTRATION.prc_option to update your MCS-150 information. Under the “Existing Registration Updates” section, choose the first option – “I need to update my USDOT number registration information or file my biennial update.”
