UCR Registration

What is UCR?
UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) is an agreement requiring individuals/companies operating commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with a participating state. Upon registering, an annual fee is due based on the size of the fleet.

Why is there a UCR Program?
Annual fees collected by the states go towards supporting safety programs and DOT officer training. Every company with an active DOT number traveling across state lines is required to pay UCR fees to their base state (the state in which you operate out of). If your base state does not participate, you must file and pay your fees through a neighboring, participating state.

Fees can be paid by YOU by going to using the Internet Explorer web browser. If you would rather someone handle this on your behalf, read beyond the Tier Scale.

2018 UCR Fees are as follows:
$69.00 for 0 to 2 vehicles;
$206.00 for 3 to 5 vehicles;
$410.00 for 6 to 20 vehicles;
$1,431.00 for 21 to 100 vehicles;
Brokers pay the 0 to 2 fee tier;
Leasing Companies pay the 0 to 2 fee tier;
Trailers are NOT included in UCR fees.
A convenience fee is added when paying this fee online.


What happens if I fail to pay my UCR fees?
Failure to pay your fees will have major impacts on your business. Ramifications include DOT officers parking your vehicle(s) until the fees are paid in full and possible citations.
