Trucks Which Weigh Over Than 6,001 Pounds
The stated GVW or CGW is used to determine the registration fees for commercial motor vehicles that weigh at least 6,001 pounds.
- Declared GVW: The truck total empty weight together with the mass of the largest cargo that will be hauled. When a truck carries a cargo but does not tow another truck.
- Declared CGW: The total gross weight weight of the truck combined (car and trailer) plus the highest cargo that the pair will transport. Towing trucks are those that tow another truck after themselves.
