My question is , I have a cdl a with doubles,tanker,cycle,air . I pull my 30" goose neck registered to me personaly with my p/u registered to my very own company. The truck is plated for personal use as it only a parts/butt buggy. How do they look at that? The best part is when I help on the farm I was told by the dot that my license was no good and needed a FARM endorsement! What I don"t like is NO standards!!!!! You put 1000 different dot in a room give them 1 question and you get 1000 different answers. I could go on and on but my blood pressure is thru the roof. Trucker

It5 depends on what your state laws are and if your doing interstate work. And when you say DOT, are you talking State DOT, Federal DOT or State DMV? In my state you'd be a CMV in all cases and operating under FMCSA rules. Here there is no difference between personal use and commercial IF the rig is being used for the business or to assist another business. If you're going to get a loaf of bread, that;s different.

I know all about the seeming lack of standards. IME the problem isn't so much a lack of standards, the rules and regs and laws are all written down. The problem is that people confuse State and Federal DOT and try and apply something from one state to another under state law or to apply interstate to intrastate or licensing in one state ti interstate, etc. I sympathize. Thats why we spent almost as much time reading the numerous books and trying to keep up with changes and then to advise people of how to do things right as we did doing inspections and such. I know not all DOT guys do that, but in my mind that was the right way.
