UCR Registration

If you operate any truck or bus in interstate commerce, you must register with the federal Unified Carrier Registration (UCR) program. Nevada is a non-participating state and does not offer this service. However, Nevada-based carriers must comply with UCR. You must register with a participating state. Online registration is available at www.ucr.in.gov or see UCR Contacts.

Daily Use

Overlength/Overweight

With the passage of AB 320, beginning January 1, 2020 Nevada will increase the maximum gross weight for registration from 80,000 pounds (lbs.) to 129,000 lbs., eliminating the need for a separate overweight/over length permit for reducible loads. A separate longer combination permit is still required for a reducible load that is less than 80,001 lbs. but exceeds 70 feet in length. This permit will still cost $11.00 per permit and is transferable between vehicles.

As long as the declared weight at the time the vehicle is registered or renewed for calendar year 2020 is in excess of 80,000 lbs., such vehicle is “deemed permitted” to operate at any legal reducible combination within the registered weight class. Each vehicle being operated in excess of 80,000 lbs. must be registered at the maximum weight (up to 129,000 lbs.) the vehicle will be operated at in Nevada.

Nevada will no longer be allowing mid-year weight decreases. You may increase the weight throughout the registration year but only decrease the weight on your renewal packet. See the AB 320 Notice for more information.
