    truck over 5 ton requires med card. Truck with trailer rated over 5k ton and combined over 26 ton gcwr require class a cdl. Doesnt have to weigh that. Depends on how its registered. But you are clearly at medical card weight

    What's the gcwr of the truck? Should be on the same sticker as the gvwr.

    Or Add the gcwr of the truck and trailer. Then subtract the actual weight. Whatever you get is payload capacity.

    Truck gvwr 12300
    Trailer 12000
    Gcwr would be 24300
    Actual weight 15960 with empty trailer
    Max legal payload 8340

    How are you hotshoting that with no CDL you are officially a commercial vehicle, 10K GVW normally means CDL.?

    Nope. Has to 26,001 lbs or more to need a CDL

    Class A: Any combination of vehicles which has a gross combination weight rating or gross combination weight of 11,794 kilograms or more (26,001 pounds or more) whichever is greater, inclusive of a towed unit(s) with a gross vehicle weight rating or gross vehicle weight of more than 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) whichever is greater.

    In Maine a Class C license is allowed to operate a vehile with trailer that does not exceed 27,000 pounds. 27,001+ in weight requires a class B license.
