DO THE COMMERCIAL VEHICLE
REGULATIONS APPLY TO YOU?
1. Do you declare prize money as income
from a business for tax purposes?
2. Are the costs for the underlying activities
deducted as a business expense for tax
purposes?
3. Do you accept products and / or money
for advertising a sponsor?
4. Is the transport vehicle being used in the
furtherance of a commercial operation?
If you answered “YES” to either question 1,
2, 3 or 4, continue to question 5. If you
answered “NO” to ALL questions (1-4),
STOP HERE, you are not in the furtherance
of a commercial operation.
5. Is the “gross vehicle weight” of the
single vehicle or combination (truck and
trailer) greater than 10,000 lbs?
YES – You must follow the appropriate
regulations for the location(s) you travel
in. i.e. interstate or intrastate
NO – STOP HERE! You are not subject
to the commercial vehicle regulations.
Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) is the
greater of the manufacturer’s gross weight
rating (GVWR) or the actual weight of the
vehicle plus the load. If the transport
vehicle consists of a truck and trailer, add
the GVWR or actual weight of truck to the
GVWR or actual weight of the trailer to
obtain the gross vehicle weight of the
combination. DO NOT use the registered
weight on the vehicle license plate(s) to
determine your GVW or GVWR.
