Licensing and Registration


Operators of commercial vehicles, such as large trucks, buses and vehicles hauling hazardous materials, must satisfy more stringent driver testing standards than drivers of non-commercial vehicles.

For example, a Commercial Driverís License (CDL) is required to drive a tractor trailer or any truck or trailer with a gross combination vehicle weight rating (GCWR) over 26,001 pounds or any vehicle transporting hazardous material requiring a placard.


A USDOT registration number is required for interstate travel.

Inter/intrastate operations

Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations apply to both interstate and intrastate operations.
