2022 UCR Registration Now Open


Registration Portal →

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 2020 registration year (except for state audit purposes) ended on September 30, 2021, at 5:00pm EDT.

Remaining UCR Board and Subcommittee Meetings
Given continuing uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, the UCR Board Chair Elizabeth Leaman has decided that all remaining meetings in 2021 will be telephonic meetings. Further, the Audit, Education and Training, and Finance Subcommittee meetings that were scheduled for December 15th, in San Diego, CA are now cancelled.

We apologies 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.

Please use this document as a guide to handle these issues.
