    Why do you need DOT numbers? You seem to want them more then you need them from what I understand

    If you get DOT numbers be prepared to also get at a minimum Class C and Medical Card. Also once you go commercial your wife, brother, neighbor etc can't drive the the truck 'less they also carry the proper license.
    Get ready to spend more money you don't have.

    How do I mean I need to stop as this is the first I've posted to this question. And as I stated earlier, those are the regs for MICHIGAN. Can't say the same for CHICAGO.

    I'm confused to where your hostility is coming from?
