CDL Check Box on Registry

Post by Dr Jeff » Tue Oct 07, 2014 8:35 am

Can someone please explain why there is a check box regarding CDL on the Registry? If I am completing an FMCSA Exam, is it not a given that a CDL is being requested? Or does this pertain to intra vs interstate licensing?

A driver is required to have a current and valid DOT health card (medical examiner's certificate) if operating a vehicle that is over 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and operating in interstate commerce.

A driver is required to obtain a CDL to operate any of the following vehicles:
A single vehicle with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of more than 26,000 pounds;
A combination of vehicles with a combined GVW of more than 26,000 pounds; with a trailer of more than 10,000 pounds GVW
A vehicle designed to transport 16 or more people including the driver;
Any size vehicle that requires hazardous materials placards; or
