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).

2021 UCR Registration Now Open

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.

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.
