I have read somewhere that 1 tons trucks are classified different in some states causing tag rates to be higher. Anyone have info on this?

My 3/4 ton was classified commercial in FL up until I traded it in 2019.

All pickups w/o a camper permanently mounted are issued commercial plates in CA.

My e350 van had commercial plates when I bought it used so I had DMV change the title over to passenger plates. Saved me 50% on the annual registration fee.

Yes, some states classify as commercial, once again don't rely on forum advice, contact your local DMV, and get the information straight from them. In Oregon I pay the same for our 2016 Ram 3500 DRW, as we did for our 2005 PT Cruiser Rag Top.

Every truck in CA is Commerical unless it has a shell on it. Such a scam.

This is not the place to get that info. Lots of bad info regarding this subject. Please see your state's motor vehicle dept and or highway patrol.

My 1/2 ton is Commercial in New York.

Since I got my original license plate in 1994, they've changed the law so now anything that is <6300lbs empty and isn't used commercially can get "car" plates, I just haven't felt the need to waste my time changing the registration. The difference in cost is not that much.

Technically I can't drive my 1/2 ton pickup on parkways (NO COMMERCIAL VEHICLES), but I have driven both the Lake Ontario State Parkway, and the Taconic State Parkway, but the highway patrol has never bothered me.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.
