CDL Weight Classes
There are three types of commercial auto vehicle licenses classified by A, B, and C.
Any combination of vehicles with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) or total weight of 26,001 or more pounds, provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) in tow is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
Any single vehicle with a GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating), or total weight, of at least 26,001 pounds or any such vehicle towing a vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR.
Any single vehicle or combination of vehicles that does not meet the definition of Class A or Class B, but is either designed to transport 16 or more passengers or is transporting certain types of materials. Depending on what you’ll be hauling, you may also need a HAZMAT certification.
