It’s Almost Time To Register For The 2021 UCR

The 2021 Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) period opens on October 1

The 2021 Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) period will officially open on October 1!

There will be no price adjustments for 2021.

What is UCR?

The Unified Carrier Registration Act of 2005 replaced the Single State Registration System (SSRS) as the primary method for registering commercial vehicles that travel interstate.

In simpler terms, your UCR registration (along with your MC number and DOT number) grants you interstate authority.

What you need for UCR registration

Now that the UCR registration period has opened, all you have to do is go to, and enter your USDOT number to complete registration and pay your fee.

If you have been in business for the last three years, you will need to carry proof of UCR registration with you for all three years. 

That means you should have 2019, 2020, and 2021 UCR registration documents in your truck at all times.

What is a USDOT number?

USDOT numbers are required if you have a vehicle that hauls cargo or transport passengers interstate and that meet one or more of the following requirements:

  • Has a gross or combined weight of 10,001 lbs or more
  • Transports 8 or more passengers for compensation
  • Transports 15 or more passengers not for compensation
  • Transports hazardous materials.
