Unified Carrier Registration Agreement


The Unified Carrier Registration Agreement is a base-state system for registering interstate motor carriers with vehicles over 10,000 pounds.

​All of the following operators must pay annual registration fees that fund state motor carrier safety programs, enforcement and UCR administration.

  • Private, for-hire and exempt carriers.
  • Farmers operating in interstate commerce.
  • Brokers.
  • Freight forwarders.
  • Leasing companies.
The Unified Carrier Registration website provides:
  • Registration instructions and forms.
  • A map of states participating in the UCR program.
  • Online payment services.

Learn more about UCR and What is Interstate Commerce?.

​Since Oregon does not participate in the UCR program, it does not accept fee payments.

To pay UCR fees:

  • Make the payment to the chosen base state in the form accepted by that state.
  • Visit the Unified Carrier Registration website to pay online or download the paper form to pay by mail.

Oregon and other states that do not participate in the program must enforce UCR requirements. Rules and regulations relating to the UCR Agreement are listed below.
