    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
