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.
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).
Registration for the 2021 UCR Registration year opened on October 1, 2020, at 8:00 am EDT. Fees remained the same as they were for 2020 and can be found here.
NOTE: Registration for the 2019 registration year (except for state audit purposes) ended on September 30, 2020, at 5:00pm EDT.
Introducing the UCR Decision Tree
UCR has developed a tool that anyone can use to determine they need to register under the UCR Act. Share this new resource with non-registered carriers to make sure they are in compliance.
2021 UCR Board and Subcommittee Meetings (updated 3.12.21)
Given continuing uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, the UCR Board Chair Elizabeth Leaman has decided that all meetings until December 2021 will be hosted virtually. Whether the December meetings will take place in-person or virtually will be determined in July 2021.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but we believe that this action is the most prudent course at this time.
ALERT from FMCSA: Broker and Carrier Fraud and Identity Theft
Fraud and identity theft occurs when entities use another motor carrier’s assigned USDOT number, when not authorized to do so, or when someone acts as a broker and is not registered with FMCSA. Fraud and identity theft are criminal acts.
