Commercial Vehicle (Motor Carrier) Regulation

Under Colorado law, a commercial vehicle is defined as a vehicle used in commerce that weighs at least 16,001 pounds and is self‑propelled, towed, or designed to transport 16 or more passengers.  Vehicles that are used for the commercial transportation of other motor vehicles or for hazardous materials transportation are included with the definition of a "commercial vehicle." School buses and certain agricultural vehicles are excluded from the definition.
