What is the Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) system and how do I sign up?

Created by the Unified Carrier Registration Act of 2005 (UCR Act - 49 United States Code (USC) section 14504a), it replaces the former system for registering and collecting fees from the operators of vehicles engaged in interstate travel – the Single State Registration System (SSRS).

Carriers can apply for their UCR and find more information online.
