    I have. And I have been told by ISP that there looking at your door sticker and the trail vin plate if that equals 26001 you had better have a cdl. Plate weighting doesn't really make a big deal

    You clearly have NOT.

    So if my F650 (26k GVWR) is towing my skidbob trailer (10K) what class of CDL do I need?

    To help you out here are the CMV/CDL classes:

    I'm curios how many guys responding have ever had a dot audit, CSA check or been inspected at a weigh station? Fmcsa says duffster and others who agree are correct, for the guys disagreeing how many of you hold CDL's?

    well I will say that all the numbers don't lie. through some research you are correct Duffster
    so I will say that in your examples your right
    now with that being said,,,,you never stated what the vin/door plates read.

    my company went through a paper dot audit 2 years ago....they never even looked at one truck. all they were concerned with was paperwork. so to answer that,,,,i have been through a dot audit

    one point I found

    One of the most misunderstood parts of the above requirements has to do with trailers with a GVWR in excess of 10,000 pounds when the combined GVWR does not exceed 26,000 pounds. In this case a CDL is NOT required provided you are not placarded for hazardous materials. However individual states may impose a requirement that drivers in their states must have a CDL in this situation so you need to check the requirements in your state. It is also important to note that individual state CDL licensing requirements CAN NOT be applied to drivers from other states.
