    I think if you are over 10,000 and pull a trailer you do but a box truck it is 26K. Kind of confusing but driving what we call a city truck is no big deal in Texas.

    Any GCWR of over 26k with the trailer being more than 10k pounds. Or a drive unit over 26k pounds requires a CDL, this is federal and not state to state. Not sure about air brakes though? I have my endorsement but I'm not sure about trucks under 26k needing the endorsement.

    You must have a class A with all endorsements considering your EXTENSIVE knowledge on the subject....:rolleyes: Oh wait, you never really answered any questions on the subject did you. Only gave some pseudo sarcastic quip about how ignorant other people are. You might be a big hit on the comic circut, but I don't understand how your post translates to actual knowledge on the subject? It only says CDL operator on my license as it does with all Maine licenses.

    Oh boy, here we go again.

    Link please.

    I'm questioning him, because he is wrong.

    Air brakes make no difference under 26K.

    I think you're wrong. Unless you're over 26K. With the truck and trailer.

    There is no such thing as an air brake endorsement.

    Haven't we been through this before? Ad nauseum?

    I would, because I can guarantee you don't have an air brake endorsement.
