commercial vehicles or weight

wondering about how this works because it doesn't state much on the DMV site.


are vehicles that have a GVW higher than 10,000lbs considered commercial vehicles?
Would that require different plates and getting a CDL? vehicle wouldn't be used commercially thou

Some RV's weigh more and do not require a cdl, they do have a specific plate for them though.

you only need a cdl for over 16,000lbs with air brakes AND a commercial truck.

You're not a commercial truck if you're not doing commercial work.

But there are still laws pertaining to plates and weights. Air brakes vs. hydraulic brakes, etc.

most 2500 and up trucks are over 10k gvw. so like what Mac11 said.

my 1992 Dodge 250 was like 10900 gvw, just rocked regular old B truck plates.
