    (1) The department shall issue without a hearing an authority to a motor carrier authorizing that carrier to provide transportation services subject to the jurisdiction of the department under this act, if the department finds that the motor carrier is fit, willing, and able to provide the transportation service authorized by the authority in compliance with this act. The department may attach terms or conditions to the exercise of the privilege granted by an authority as the department considers appropriate.
    (2) An application for an authority is not complete unless the applicant has complied with all applicable provisions of this act and with the application requirements of the department.
