According to Federal Law any commercial vehicle with a GVWR of 10k or more has to have a DOT number, fire extinguisher, health card etc. If you are using the vehicle for work than it is commercial. If your state does not enforce it than thats great but it is a Federal law. And there are seperate DOT numbers. Stats and Intrastate.
If they enforce that in Texas, there is going to be a lot of farriers, horse traders, etc., that will have to get their numbers. Just about every 1 ton is rated over 10k and where I live, on the edge of a big city like San Antonio, there are a lot of guys who haul cattle (for a fee) and other things.
So you can drive a one ton all day working as a salesman if it's your private vehicle but if you own a business and drive the same truck, you have to go through all the bs?
