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:

  • Freightliner M2 26 and 24-Foot Commercial Box Truck Rentals
  • Freightliner M2 22 and 24-Foot Refrigerated Box Truck Rentals
  • Isuzu Urban Delivery 16’ Box Truck Rentals

Our NON-CDL Trucks qualify for On-Site Delivery to your facility or worksite.  Ask us for more details.       

All of our heavy duty rental and lease trucks do require a CDL which include:

  • Freightliner Semi-Truck Sleep Cab Rentals
  • Freightliner Semi-Truck Day Cab Rentals
