The fees can vary each year. The UCR Board develops and recommends the fee structure to the Secretary of the US DOT. After notice and opportunity for public comment, the Secretary will set the fees for the next year and any subsequent adjustment to those fees. The fee is a flat per carrier fee and is determined by the number of commercial motor vehicles that have been reported on your last MCS-150 filed with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies pay the lowest fee.
Registration and payment for UCR can be processed online directly through the Unified Carrier Registration Portal.
