Operating a vehicle for commercial purposes is different than operating one for personal use. Generally, a vehicle or combination tractor and trailer exceeding a GVW of 26,000 pounds requires special licensing and registration. Laws governing legal operation, such as physical exams, drug testing and hours-of-service logs differ for commercial applications. For more details, contact your state's department of transportation.
