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).

ALERT from FMCSA: Broker and Carrier Fraud and Identity Theft

Proposed Changes to the UCR Agreement Are On The Way

The Unified Carrier Registration Agreement is the interstate agreement between the UCR Plan Board of Directors and the 41 states participating in the UCR Plan.  The UCR Agreement governs the collection and distribution of registration and financial responsibility information and fees paid by covered motors carriers and others under the UCR Act.  The UCR Plan Board of Directors and staff have been reviewing the UCR Agreement and have determined that the Agreement needs updating.  At the UCR Plan Board of Directors meeting on June 6, 2024, the Board adopted a procedure for considering amendments to the UCR Agreement.  A copy of that procedure has been posted to the Policies and Procedures page of the UCR website.  The procedure provides for publication of any proposed amendments to the UCR Agreement to allow for a period of public comment. We encourage you to review the procedure and participate in the public comment process.  For questions contact [email protected].
