The Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Program is a Federally-mandated, annual state-administered registration program that replaced Single State Registration.

The Following 41 States Currently Participate:

Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia

Motor carriers, motor private carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies and brokers based in the United States, Canada, Mexico, or any other country that operate in interstate or international commerce in the United States must register under the UCR program. For the for-hire carriers, UCR replaced the Single State Registration System (SSRS) program. SSRS was not renewed for 2007. The UCR program is similar to SSRS in that UCR is a Base-State system, under which a carrier pays UCR fees through its Base State on behalf of all participating states.

Entities not required to register under the UCR program include:

1. USDOT registrants (usually owner-operators that do not have interstate authority) under the PRISM program.
2. Purely intrastate carriers, that is, those that do not transport interstate freight or cross state lines.

UCR fees are based on the total number of vehicles operated by a carrier. Note: effective April 28, 2010, the UCR Board of Directors has changed the state UCR fee schedule that was in effect for 2007, 2008 & 2009. Trailers are no longer counted as vehicles. The number of commercial motor vehicles for purposes of determining carrier UCR fees is the number of self-propelled commercial motor vehicles the carrier reported in the most recent Form MCS-150 filed with the FMCSA. Carriers must update their MCS-150 record at least every two years. You can call at (888) 414-1874 to update your record.

Registrants will be issued a receipt for the fees paid based on the total number of vehicles indicated on the UCR application. This receipt expires December 31st. The issued receipt need NOT be carried in vehicles nor displayed by the carrier in any manner. Registration will be vaildated by way of its linkage to your DOT/MC Number. Normally, Federal Law requires registration by December 31st.

*Fee charged is a combined UCR state fee and a third-party processing fee that covers all internal costs including Internet advertising, our credit card processing, instant access and usage fees imposed by the UCR Board of Directors, based on the final fee schedule that went into effect on April 28, 2010. We do not charge our customers credit card surcharges; we absorb the UCR Board's instant access and usage fees. Fee is the same whether you pay by credit card, money order or check.
