Pay Department of Transportation Fees Online

The U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has a new website called "Do It Yourself."

The Do It Yourself site allows DOT customers to pay fees for registrations, pipeline assessments, certificate payments, training and many other services DOT offers. Customers fill out forms and pay by credit card -- all online.

The website is accessible 24 hours a day. It eliminates errors due to multiple data handling, speeds payment processing and product or service delivery and avoids forms and checks from being misplaced or stolen.

The site was developed collaboratively by staff members in Washington, DC, and Oklahoma City.
