Unified Carrier Registration (“UCR”) is a mandatory registration program that applies to all private and for-hire motor carriers that operate in interstate commerce. If you are an interstate carrier and file UCR, you will need to file a non-expiring Motor Carrier Permit (MCP). So remember, the UCR Vehicle deadline is June 30th.
Motor carriers that operate in interstate commerce must register and pay a UCR annual fee. The fee is based on the size of commercial motor vehicles (count only power units) in the carrier’s fleet. Due to a change in the law, trailers are not included in calculating the size of the carrier’s fleet. If a motor carrier operates motor vehicles in interstate commerce but not commercial motor vehicles as defined below, the carrier is still required to register and pay the lowest UCR fee.
