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.
New Permitting Site Now Available
The Unified Carrier Registration Plan (UCR) has launched a new registration site available for 3rd Party Permitting Service Providers. The site is secure and is available by request only. To request access, please go to www.permitting.ucr.gov and click on the “Company Signup” button.
NOTE: The new permitting site is NOT intended for individual carrier registration purposes. If you are a carrier that needs to register for UCR, please continue with your registration here at www.UCR.Gov

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.
