You guys crack me up with your CDL requirement interpretations. It may vary from state to state, but around here if you're driving a pickup the commercial vehicle enforcement guys don't care about you and how much weight youre towing unless you're hotshotting cars from state to state.

I suggest some reading classes, perhaps hooked on phonics.

Look at page 4 under class C it says no trailers over 10k

After five days this is all you can come up with?

You will have to point out or copy and paste exactly what you are talking about in that link because all I found was where it said you could drive combination under 26k with any class of license except "M" not that I would put much stock in that because that chart doesn't jive with any of the classes of DL described in the text.

It also says in one line that you can drive a bus under 26,001 with a CDL class C and in another line it says you can't.


You say you need a CDL to tow over 10k so what class of CDL would I need in MD to drive my F350(GVWR 9900) towing a 12k trailer?

Being a commercial truck would mean you would need a Class A CDL.

This is the excerpt hes talking about and hes misinterpreting it.

A combination vehicle with a gross combination
weight rating of 26,001 or more pounds, if
the trailer(s) has a GVWR of 10,001 or more
pounds.

This means you can have a GCWR of 36,000 pounds WITHOUT a CDL only if the GVWR of the trailer is 10,000 or less. If its a 12,000 pound trailer then you need to stay under 26k or have a CDL.


Read question and answer number 6
