What determines if a rental truck requires a CDL or not?
A CDL is required if a truck/trailer exceeds 26,001 pounds for its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or GVWR. Meaning anything under 26,001 pounds can be driven with your normal Class D driver’s license. Typically, light and medium duty trucks do not require a CDL because they fall under the 26,001-pound limit. Although, there are some cases that a medium duty box truck may weigh more than 26,001 pounds and therefore will require a CDL.
All of Century’s box trucks are NON-CDL which include:
