UCR 2018-2019 fees finalized

Fees are lower than previous years

Posted January 3, 2018

Expected in the Federal Register this coming Friday, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) will adopt the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) registration fees for 2018, 2019, and beyond.

For the 2018 registration year, the fees are reduced by approximately 9.10 percent compared to previous years. For the 2019 registration year and beyond, the fees are reduced by approximately 4.55 percent. The fee reductions are being adopted to help ensure the fee revenues in 2018, 2019, and future years do not exceed the statutory maximum allowed.

The previous fees compared to the new 2018 and 2019 fees are as follows:

Number of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) owned or operated by exempt or non-exempt motor carrier, motor private carrier, or freight forwarder 2017 and prior year fees per entity for exempt or non-exempt motor carrier, motor private carrier, or freight forwarder 2018 fees per entity for exempt or non-exempt motor carrier, motor private carrier, or freight forwarder 2019 fees per entity for exempt or non-exempt motor carrier, motor private carrier, or freight forwarder

The fees for brokers and leasing companies were $76 per entity, but in 2018 and 2019 are reduced to $69 and $73 per entity, respectively.
