Truck Classification

All trucks, from a Chevy S-10, to the largest, heavy duty trucks on the road, are classified into categories. Trucks are categorized by weight into classifications 1-9, and each grade comes with its own set of regulations and license requirements. Here’s a quick guide, from Florida Tractor Repair, Inc in Hampton.

Class 1

Light truck

0 - 6,000 pounds

Class 2

Light truck

6,001 - 10,000 pounds

Class 3

Light truck

10,001 - 14,000 pounds

Class 4

Medium truck

14,001 - 16,000 pounds

Class 5

Medium truck

16,001 - 19,500 pounds

Class 6

Medium truck

19,501 - 26,000 pounds

Class 7

Heavy truck

26,001 - 33,000 pounds

Class 8

Heavy truck

33,001 pounds

Class 9

Super-heavy / special duty truck

33,001 pounds

While any truck can be a commercial truck, a special license isn’t required until a truck exceeds 26,000 pounds, loaded. Classes 7 and 8 require a CDL, and class 9 is typically reserved for large specialty trucks, for use in mining and logging operations. Trucks falling in classes 1-6 don’t require special permits; just a normal driver’s license.
