Welcome to the official website for the Unified Carrier Registration Plan

The Plan oversees the federal UCR Agreement which requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with a participating state and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. This includes all carriers – private, exempt or for hire.


These 41 states are included in the UCR Act.

UCR Act of 2005

The UCR Agreement is found in 49 United States Code (USC) section 14504a (hereinafter referred to as section 14504a or § 14504a).


Important Notice:

UCR 2017 Registration Period Will End on September 28

Please note that the 2017 UCR registration year will end September 28, 2018.

New: UCR Dispute Resolution Procedures

The UCR Board recently approved Dispute Resolution Procedures for the program. Congress has appointed the UCR Board of Directors as the responsible resolution team for any disputes or issues that may arise between parties concerning states participating in the Unified Carrier Registration Plan, motor carriers, and other entities subject to the fees imposed by the act.


UCR Handbook Now Available

The UCR Board recently approved a new guidance document. The official UCR Handbook is intended to provide authoritative guidance on the UCR program and is a great resource for both states that participate in the program and for transportation businesses that are subject to its requirements.
