The UCR Program requires individuals and companies that operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate or international commerce to register with a participating state and pay an annual fee based on the size of their fleet. This includes motor carriers, motor private carriers, freight forwarders, leasing companies and brokers based in the United States, Canada, Mexico, or any other country that operate across state lines. It also includes carriers transporting interstate goods even if their vehicles do not leave the state. Interstate carriers based in a non-participating state, still must comply, and a base state is assigned. It is advisable to use a professional DOT compliance agent to register under the UCR program to avoid confusions regarding the participating states and the assignment thereof.

Entities not required to register under the UCR program include: purely intrastate carriers, that is, those that do not engage in interstate transportation across state lines or otherwise operate in interstate commerce.
