In Iowa a farmer can drive his own semi hauling his own grain with out a CDL or Med Card.The pamplet the DOT gave me does not read that way as I read it.But have been told by DOT officer that farmers fall under a different category.I have everything[cdl,med card,dot# and know about log books] but only haul my cargo for myself and thats my story.The minute you put a dot # on your truck , you have became commercial and med card,cdl and log book over 100miles,and scale stoppage become mandatory..To be honest some of the officers that enforce the rules dont know the rules.A friend of mine got a $313 ticket that was promptly threw out with one phone call as the officer was wrong but still put the truck out of service for no CDL and other things with an empty trailer.If he had not been speeding they probably had no reason to stop him but that was not what they wrote him for.

I was told by IA DOT that I didn't need the med card, log book or cdl if I was hauling my own farm product within 150 air miles of home even if it meant crossinbg state lines. I was fully covered any way with all requirements. A month later I was on a WI scale and they spent an hour looking for the rules and found that was true if you carry farm plates. We have apportioned plates so all farm exemptions were void. Since I live close to state lines we carry permits for all surrounding states and claim a sales tax exemption on our truck and trailer as long as 25 % of the mioles are out of the state. Luckily I had everything in place and left without dropping any money

While the states have 3 yrs to comply MAP-21 section 32934 and section 32101 are going to take care of this.

Here is why the DOT officer said you do not need a CDL to drive your farm truck.......

383.3 Applicability
A State may, at its discretion, exempt individuals identified in paragraphs (d)(1),
(d) Exception for farmers, (1) Operators of a farm vehicle which is:
(i) Controlled and operated by a farmer, including operation by employees or family members;
(ii) Used to transport either agricultural products, farm machinery, farm supplies, or both to or from a farm;
(iii) Not used in the operations of a common or contract motor carrier; and
(iv) Used within 241 kilometers (150 miles) of the farmer's farm.
