Request Methods

All Motive APIs use HTTP request methods to indicate the desired operation to be performed. All endpoints in this documentation specify the request method that should be used for each API request.


Use a GET request when fetching data (like listing all your company’s drivers).


Use a POST request when creating new records (like adding a driver to your fleet).


Use a PUT request when updating existing records (like changing a driver’s cycle setting).


Use a DELETE request when deleting existing records (like removing a driver from your fleet).
