Unified Carrier Registration
The SSRS (Single State Registration System) program ended on January 1, 2007 and has been replaced by the UCR (Unified Carrier Registration) program. This new program applies to all interstate motor carriers, motor private carriers, freight forwarders, brokers and leasing companies

UCR applies to businesses that:
operate a truck or bus in interstate or international commerce, or
make arrangements for the transportation of cargo and goods
The UCR Program requires all individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business under the UCR program and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet.

Companies operating solely as brokers, freight forwarders or leasing companies are required to register and pay a fee of $76. Companies providing both motor carrier services as well as broker, freight forwarder or leasing services are required to pay the fee level set at the motor carrier level.

A "commercial motor vehicle" is defined as a self-propelled or towed vehicle used on the highways in commerce principally to transport passengers or cargo, if the vehicle:
has a gross vehicle weight rating or gross vehicle weight of at least 10,001 pounds or more, whichever is greater
is designed to transport 11 or more passengers (including the driver)
is used in transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding

IMPORTANT NOTE: You are not required to carry a credential in the vehicle but it is a good idea to carry in the vehicle a copy of the receipt that was issued when fees were paid.

It is also important to know that you must update this registration yearly!
