Dual-Rear-Wheel Pickup Trucks May Not Need Commercial Plates

    Posted by MAIA on October 10, 2018

    A change in the law has eliminated the requirement that all vehicles with five or more wheels on the ground have commercial plates. This is good news for the customer who owns a pickup truck with dual rear wheels strictly for personal use — they can now get passenger plates and obtain non-commercial safety inspections.

    However, any vehicle that has advertising or is used for commercial purposes is still required to have commercial plates.
