This is the page I was looking at that was confusing me...
But, then on this page (http://www.dmv.ca.gov/dl/dl_info.htm
), it states:
A commercial vehicle is a motor vehicle or combination used for hire to transport passengers or property or which:
Has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more
Is designed, used, or maintained for carrying more than 10 passengers, including the driver
Tows a vehicle or trailer, which has a GVWR of 10,001 pounds or more
Transports hazardous materials, which requires placards
Tows any combination of two trailers or vehicle and trailer
Which would mean I need a CDL....
