    I think I've seen "driven in more than 3 states" before, but not positive. Should qualify as OTR.

    I do the same thing. For purposes of the IRS, your OTR at tax time. For exp., your considered regional/OTR if changing jobs. When I was looking at changing jobs, I go by the 13 states on our registration that we are permitted for, I've run all 13 plus a couple of extra's.
