Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Program

Notice To All Interstate Motor Carriers and Motor Private Carriers

If you operate a truck or bus in interstate or international commerce the federal Unified Carrier Registration Agreement (UCR) applies to your business.

The UCR requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register their business with New Hampshire and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. You must register for the calendar year 2012 by December 31, 2011 in order to be in compliance with this filing requirement.

For purposes of determining fees, a "commercial motor vehicle" is defined as a self-propelled 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, whichever is greater; or
  • is designed to transport more than 10 passengers, including the driver; or
  • is used in transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

If you operated in 2011 and did not register in the UCR, you must pay your 2011 UCR fees to avoid possible enforcement action.
