Yes, but you mostly you only have to worry about your state.

In CA all commercial vehicles have obligation to drive via DOT scales.
Some scales have "no pickups" sign, so if you are less than 11,000 GVWR you can bypass it.

A privately owned, privately used one ton should not have to comply with the same regulations that an over the road semi does, but unfortunately the laws have been misused to that effect. At the last renewal for my Ram 1 ton dually, they asked me if it is used for commercial, I said no, they gave me this new plate that states non-commercial. Hopefully it keeps the highway nazis away.
