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?
UCR takes the place of Single State Registration System (SSRS) and was implemented in September 2007. Annual fees collected by the states go towards supporting safety programs and US DOT officer training. Every company 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. The following states are currently not participating: Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Wyoming and the District of Columbia; therefore, you must choose another state to register under.
