What Is Considered A Commercial Motor Vehicle?
A Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) means a motor vehicle or combination of motor vehicles, used in commerce to transport passengers or property, having a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of greater than 26,000 pounds. However, most Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) apply to vehicles with a GVWR greater than 10,000 pounds, depending on how the vehicle is used. In 2020, 72% of the trucks involved in fatal traffic crashes were big trucks with a GVWR greater than 26,000 pounds.
