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.
