From what I am reading you believe that you need a CDL in Missouri if you pull a trailer over 10,000 even though the total rig is under 26,000 lbs.

If I am reading this correct please help me out.
Go to the link I provided.........
Missouri CDL manual
Go to page 1-1 and take the test on the right side of the page and tell me how you come up with that thinking.

Pick a state. Any state. And the only way you need a CDL if the truck/trailer combo is under 26,000 lbs is if you have 16 passengers spots or you haul haz mat. You do not even answer the question of what size trailer you have unless you can answer yes to it is over 26,000 lbs total.

John if you read below this came directly from the newest Missouri DMV CDL word for word.I didn't mean to stir up trouble. I have had a CDL since they came out.If I didn't have I would get one. With a class A you could go anywhere hauling your tractors as long as your within legal weight.You only need a log book if your hauling for hire and then thats if only you run outside a 150 mile radius of home base.

You are reading it wrong. The very first question is Does the vehicle or

combination of vehicles have a manufacturer’s weight rating (GVWR) over 26,000 pounds?

If the answer is NO, then if it under 16 passenger and no hazmat, you do not need a CDL. Trailer weight does not matter.

Iowa has the same rules. It amazes me how everyone reads the rules incorrectly. I have a 11,500 dually truck with a 14,000 lb trailer. It is under 26,000 so I do not need a CDL.

Also, I do not farm, so this is a hobby for me and I haul my own personal property. There is no way for me to even get a DOT#. The first question on the DOT application is what is your business name? I have no business.
They are cracking down on farmers, which is a business. If you run farm plates or business trade plates to cut down on your taxes, then expect problems from the DOT, because you just told them that you are a business.
