DIESELSUBMARINER Posted February 17, 2017 Report Share Posted February 17, 2017 OK Guys, this might have been answered somewhere before, but i am still confused. I spoke with the DMV and got the following answer in regards to license requirement for an HDT Truck: If your Truck is less than 26001 actual or declared Gross vehicle weight, you can drive it with a standard class E license... But here comes in the wired part i been told : if your Truck is over 8000 lbs than the 26001 is the max Combined Vehicle weight.. That would mean, if a HDT is already say 20.000 lbs, i can only pull 6000 ?? I asked and the lady quoted some hidden rule.. so i said that any 1 ton truck is already over 8000 and most can tow up to 22000lbs ... so she said legally you need a CDL... ? Does anybody know for sure ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
