    I am just starting out and was wondering how do I acquire a DOT number for my truck in the state of Indiana and how much does it cost? Living near the border of Michigan do I need one for there also? Something about it has to be more the 10,000 lbs. before needing a number? A yearly phyiscal as well is needed right? Thank you for you time.

    Not sure about the state requirements, but I just got my federal. Physical is every 2 years for the medical card. Pee in the cup, read the line, turn your head and cough, etc. Severity depends on your needs. Keep vehicle records, time sheets, etc. The federal site is
