There are a number confusing and unclear areas related to the need for CDL.
One of them is the term "commercial". That means to some that if they are only hauling their own stuff (or lying about it), or they are not in the business of trucking, then the rules do not apply to them.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The rules and laws are established to help make our roads safer. It has to do with the COMBINED WEIGHT RATING of the vehicle or rig (truck and trailer of any size)
So, no matter what excuse you use to try to get out of CDL rules if you are over 26,001 LBS combined RATING, you are still a liabilty if your rig goes out of control, brakes fail, you go to sleep at the wheel, etc.
If it is your loved ones that get maimed or killed by a truck driver in an accident that was not properly licensed, your approach to this would be 180 degrees!
By the way, even if the accident is not your fault, if they find that you are not properly licensed, you will be suied and lose a lot of hard earned money.
It is just not worth the risk. The required minimum one million dollars in insurance does not go very far when ambulance chaser lawyers get involved, and they will.
Hire someone to haul your stuff that requires a rig in CDL territory.
