FMCSA plans to hike UCR fees by 25% next year


The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issued a proposal to significantly increase Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) fees, starting next year.

The FMCSA published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on January 9, 2024, to increase the annual registration fees that participating states collect from motor carriers, motor private carriers of property, brokers, freight forwarders, and leasing companies for the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) Plan and Agreement for the 2025 registration year and subsequent registration years.

The UCR fees would increase by 25% overall, with carriers paying between $9 and $9,000┬ámore than they did in 2024, depending on the size of the company’s fleet.

The FMCSA is accepting public comments on the plan to increase UCR fees now through February 8, 2024. So far, only four public comments have been received.
