If your under 26k combined you dont.

"Under the Act, applicants who must be tested and
licensed for the specific commercial vehicle type they
operate include those who drive a tractor trailer or
any other truck combination of vehicles with a gross
vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of more than 26,000
pounds, a bus, including all school buses, or any
vehicle used or placarded for carrying hazardous
material (HazMat)."

Under the nj dmv theres a section on cdl's that you can download a pdf and tells you everything you need to know about cdls.
