If you receive money to transport passengers or household goods within Indiana, you must apply for Indiana Operating Authority. The three types of Indiana operating authorities are:

Permanent Authority (PERM): If you apply for a PERM only, do not file a Form E Indiana (insurance) filing until after your authority is approved. This authority will be permanent and will take approximately 70-180 days to process.

Temporary Authority (TA): You must file all the documents listed below before the process can begin. You must file the PERM application at the same time. This authority will be good for 180 days and will take approximately 30-60 days to process.

Emergency Temporary Authority (ETA): You must file all the documents listed below before the process can begin. You must file the TA and PERM applications at the same time. This authority will be good for 30 days and will take approximately 7-10 days to process.
