Registered truck weight?

I got my registration renewal in the mail today and as im looking it over i see the GVW is listed at 6000/7000 lbs. (2006 f350drw) Realizing that weight is wayy lower than it should be ill be going to the dmv to register it at the correct weight.

My question is on my GVWR tag on the truck is 13,000lbs but if i read my DMV info correct i have to get a class A cdl for anything registered over 10,000lbs?

Those who Dont have cdl's what are your registered weights?

my '99 was register at 12000#'s, my 08 is at 26000#. Usually the 10000# limit for CDL is if your driving for hire, but some states might be different.

Im not exactly sure what your talking about but I can have a GVW to 26001 lbs here in Colorado. Your Truck weighs about 9200lbs because i drive an 08 drw crew cab.

countryraised is right though it should be closer to 26000 as far as the title goes.

Side note, Npeyton your truck weighs 9200 ? how much fuel on board at that weight?
weighed mine the other day, 9200#'s but almost empty on fuel, add 45-50 gal of fuel and I might be over 9500#.

well the weight would be what the dump scale says when i am empty. I dont know how accurate that is but usually its over half of a tank.

You don't need a CDL for over 10k.
