Yes! They sure do! Thank you for mentioning that.

Thank you, Dad - for always being the dad that you were. You truly are my hero. You always were.

They may even put you out-of-service, if they find too many things wrong. If you stay in state, and your state doesn't require it, then don't worry. Here in Georgia, anyone who is over 10K (truck or combined) have to abide by all regulations unless they are a recreational vehicle or farm vehicle.
What if it is not registered to a company?

I am not aware of any personal exemption on a federal level.

It depends what you are hauling. If your towing campers, boats, atvs, etc then no you do not need to be DOT registered. if you are hauling construction or landscape equipment, it depends on the state. You may have to prove that it is for personal use. I would say you would have to be DOT registered. Kind of a gray area. I make sure to have the marked vehicle if I'm picking up something across the state line. Better to be safe
