Frequently Asked Questions
Question: If a driver of a CMV, classified heavy tow truck has been called via a hand held mobile telephone by law enforcement officials to assist in an emergency situation, does the driver of the CMV get the exception under392.82(C)?
Answer: Yes, the driver would fall under the exception and would be able to communicate with law enforcement officials and other emergency services at the time of the call, and during the emergency situation. This would include hand-held mobile telephone communication with law enforcement officials, other emergency services as well as the drivers home terminal and members of his/her company. However; it needs to be clear, the use of the hand-held mobile telephone is authorized provided the use is strictly in conjunction with the emergency. That being said any situation or complaint involving the use of hand-held mobile telephones by your drivers or any driver of a CMV, the Heavy Tow Truck Company would be investigated to confirm the use was in conjunction with the emergency police situation.
Question: Is a commercial driver’s license (CDL) required for all tow truck drivers?
Question: Does my towing business pay transaction privilege tax?
Answer: No, "services" are not taxable.
