    Usually, you will need the normal plates that go on that truck then have the tags rated for the 26k. I dunno if all states do the weight rating on the tags for non-apportioned but here in FL they did when I ran as non CDL.

    Your license has zero bearing on your registration. They both go off GVWR sure, but while you can register for less weight, your CDL is based on GVWR and not the registered weight.

    What is the GVWR and will this be intrastate or interstate?

    I driver for my mom and dads hauling company. I wanted to ask if 1.25 per mile a fair pay. I have to pay for my fuel dead heading to get boat and to go home. Also, I am using their truck. Last run I made 670 and after fuel and expenses I made 120.27.

    Welcome to the business. You should be charging $2.50 per mile for all miles, plus a fuel surchage. You could work at Home Depot and make a $120 a day without any headaches. Don't run cheap.

    Most drivers that drive for someone do a 60/40 split. That's pretty standard in the industry if the driver is paying fuel and tolls.

    So your running a 536 mile trip, that should pay minimally $1340. Sounds like your parents don't have a clue about their cost per mile

    To be honest it takes some understanding of all the different weights. first if you have a f350 or 3500 or anything of the sort its going to have gross combined vehicle weight rating GCVWR over 26,001lbs (fully loaded truck plus fully loaded trailer) regardless if it really is lfully loaded or not.... its the rating that counts that is over 26,001 lbs this is only one aspect of the calculation... i have an 2015 f250 its GCVRW is 24000..truck has GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING of 10,000lbs and my trailer has a GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING OF 14,000 LBS that eqauls a GROSS COMBINED VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING OF 24,000 lbs no cdl required

    You can order a 350/3500 with a 10K GVWR option. Add a 16K GVWR trailer and good to go at 26K.
