Time to Renew Unified Carrier Registration (UCR)

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) finalized rules for 2019 Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) fees in December 2018. The registration period began on December 28, 2018 and will continue through December 31, 2019. The UCR Board recommends that enforcement begin April 1, 2019.

To register for 2019 UCR, please visit https://www.ucr.gov and follow the instructions below. This is a new PAPERLESS system (no longer the Indiana system). It is recommended that you use Chrome, Firefox, or Edge as your browser when accessing the website.

  • Sign into the National Registration System (NRS) website using your USDOT number and the last 4 digits of your Tax ID Number. If you are a sole proprietor, enter the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number.
  • If you operated as an interstate carrier in 2018 and did not register, you must register for that year now.
  • If you are not engaged in Interstate commerce and do not require Texas intrastate authority, you can request inactivation of your USDOT number by sending an e-mail to MCD_MCCS_UCR@TxDMV.gov.
  • If you are not engaged in Interstate commerce but have a TxDMV Intrastate Certificate,  contact the FMCSA at 800-832-5660 and update your USDOT number to show that you are INTRASTATE ONLY. If you do not update your USDOT profile you will continue to receive the UCR notices and reminders.

Failure to register could result in fines and penalties starting at $300

For questions or additional information, contact the TxDMV Motor Carrier Division at 1-800-299-1700, then select options 3-4-3.
