Unified Carrier Registration (UCR)

Register or Renew your UCR


Due to technical issues related to the migration of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration registration data to cloud servers, motor carriers that have received a new USDOT number since November 23, 2016 are unable to register for UCR at this time. We will post on this webpage as soon as we have been notified by FMCSA that this issues has been resolved and affected carriers may register for UCR.

Fees & Payment

The UCR fee is determined by the number of motor vehicles (excluding trailers) last reported by the carrier to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

A commercial motor vehicle is defined as a self-propelled vehicle used on the highways in commerce, principally to transport passengers or cargo if the vehicle:

· has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross vehicle weight of at least 10,001 pounds,
whichever is greater;

· is designed to transport more than 10 passengers, including the driver; or

· is used in transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding.
