Not for hire simply means that they do not have (and cannot obtain) an ICC/DOT number. Ie: the vehicle is NOT used for any commercial purpose, EVER.
There are tons of folks that place this on their vehicles in an attempt to skirt the law, they all get caught eventually. Those scale officers are well educated in the laws, and you will not fool them (for long, if at all).
I am NOT SURE, but I think that you do not have to mess with IFTA, tax reporting etc, if "Not for Hire".
