As soon as you hook a 10k plus trailer on you need a cdl to be legal

....add to this...CLASS A...

When you are sitting on the scales and your TRAILER is 10K (or more) need Class A. This is true even if your gross weight (again...while sitting on the scales) is less than 26K. The "kicker" in this scenario is the TRAILER weight while sitting on the scales.

That's how it was "simply" explained to me years ago here in NC while I was sitting on the DOT scales.

The 10,000lb limit is confusing. If you hook a 10,000lb or higher rated trailer to a class B CMV then you need a class A CDL to pull it. If the combined weight rating of the entire vehicle is less than the 26,000lb then in most states you don't need the CDL or have to pull into the port. That isn't true in every state....UTAH is a prime example as well as Nebraska...pickup with trailer is required to pull in no matter the weight.

But the scales are in the interstate, they only pull you off if you are close or over.
