UCR Carriers & Permit Agents


PLEASE NOTE: UCR Recommends States Start 2019 Enforcement as of MAY 1

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).



UCR Extends 2019 Registration Grace Period

Enforcement Now Recommended as of May 1

The Unified Carrier Registration Plan (UCR) is recommending an extended grace period for 2019 enforcement.

UCR is requesting that states delay enforcement to May 1 for the 2019 registration period.

The delay is intended to provide motor carriers with ample time to register for the 2019 period.

The Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) supports the UCR recommendation: https://plan.ucr.gov/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/2019-01_Unified_Carrier_Registration_Agreement_UCR_Revised_03-28-2019.pdf

The schedule of UCR fees for 2019 was published in the Federal Register in late December.
