    Search the net for Michigan DOT and see what it says, if it doesn't tell you much, there should be a phone number, call them and ask. It sure beats the DOT Officer telling you along the road that you need the commercial plates and DOT numbers: "oh by the way we are towing your truck for not complying."

    Here's your thread......It is an ongoing one, but a good one all the same. We are blessed to have a law enforcement officer who also happens to be a weighmaster. I'd rather see this done with a search and find it already on here, as I don't really want to bother him with repeat questions. Anyway, your answer about the commercial plates is in this thread, - among ALOT of other good info. I hope this helps! http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=152395&highlight=GVW
