Default Pennsylvania Regulations?

I've been researching and looking at truck lettering examples, why is it when I see a pickup truck lettered, there is a Licence number listed. Is it a DOT number or what. What is this number and why do I need it?

Sort of correct, but not specific enough.

The "PA number" (starts with "PA") is a HIC number. (Home Improvement Contractor)

It's not so much a "license" as it is a "registration".

As far as the D.O.T. numbers on trucks, you can only imagine all the bureaucracy involved with it.

Read through this site and it will help you figure out if you need one.
