When most people hear the words “Commercial Vehicle”, they automatically think big rigs, 18 wheelers, and semi-trucks. But in fact, an ordinary pickup truck could be classified as a Semi Truck. According to FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration), the general definition of a commercial motor vehicle has several parts: a self-propelled or towed vehicle used to transport goods or passengers, with a gross vehicle weight rating or combination weight rating of 26,001 points or more, or seats to transport more than eight passengers for money, or seats to transport more than fifteen passengers, not for money, or a bed or trailer to transport a large quantity of hazardous material.
A vehicle is giving commercial status when its primary purpose is the transportation of property or persons for hire. Some of the most common types of Semi Trucks are box trucks, semi-trucks, big rigs, large truck, buses, coach buses, vans, trailers, heavy construction equipment, farming equipment, travel trailers over 10,000 pounds, taxi-cabs, limousines, ice cream trucks, for-hire passenger vehicles, ride hailing vehicles, delivery vehicles, and more.
