Start of 2020 Registration Year Remains Delayed (see below for details)  

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).



Start of 2020 UCR Registration Period Remains Delayed
Board to Review Enforcement Delay at Jan. 28 Meeting

(January 2, 2020) – As the new year begins, the start of the registration period for the 2020 Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) program remains delayed until further notice.  The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) confirmed this week that the process to establish a final rulemaking for 2020 is still underway within the agency.

The UCR Board of Directors (Board) recommends that states and law enforcement delay enforcement for three months starting from the effective date of the 2020 fees.  The Board will review the current situation at its next meeting on January 28.  Once fees for the 2020 Registration Year are effective, we will, of course, post another message immediately.
