WHAT IS THE UCR?

The UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) is a program that replaced the (SSRS) Single State Registration System. The UCR program was implemented on September 10, 2007. The SSRS expired in December 2006.

The UCR Program requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce within and from participating states to register their business with a base state and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. This includes ALL commercial carriers - private, exempt, or for hire. Brokers, freight forwarders and leasing companies are also required to register and pay a fee, unless they also operate as a motor carrier.

Each company is required to pay its UCR fee with its base state (the state in which your company operates out of). If your base state does not participate in the program you are required to pay your UCR fee through a neighboring, participating state. Currently, the following states are not participating in the UCR program: Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Oregon, Vermont, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.

FEE STRUCTURES

The fee structure of the UCR pogram is based on the company's fleet size. The amount of vehicles in operation within a company will determine the annual fee that company is expected to render.

US Compliance Services charges a flat fee of $75.00 to process the UCR application, regardless of fleet size. The 2021 UCR program follows the following fee structure, including application processing fee.

  • 0-2 vehicles = $145.00
  • 3-5 vehicles = $275.00
  • 6-20 vehicles = $470.00
  • 21-100 vehicles = $1,410.00
