Do not get me wrong. I do not want to sound abrasive; and I surelly do not think that about you. I just want to get this out in the open so everyone can see the facts and learn from it.
From what I am reading you think that even though my truck and trailer have a GCWR less than 26,000 lbs I still need a CDL because my trailer has a GVWR over 10,000 lbs.
So lets use the flow chart you linked....
Is the vehicle a combination
Is the GCWR more than 26,000 lbs
Is the GVWR of the power unit 26,000 lbs
Do you tranport hazmat or passengers
No and No
NO CDL REQUIRED
We did not even get to the question about the trailer GVWR because the GCWR is less than 26,000 lbs.
We can talk about some other points you made in your orginal post I do not agree with if you would like.
I will also add......
You do not have to be commercial to need a CDL
CDL applys to everyone.
From the Iowa book you linked. page 9
A commercial driverís license (CDL) is required for anyone driving any of the following sizes or types of vehicles.
Read that statement word for word and show me where it says commercial trucks only.
