Do you need a cdl license to buy a truck?

Not necessarily, although you do need the appropriate class licence to actually operate it. You can operate anything up to 26,000 lbs. GVWR on a standard Class C licence. Anything above that, you either need a non-CDL Class B or A licence, or a Class A or B CDL, depending on what type of truck it is specifically, and if its use permits it to fall within any of the exceptions for requiring an actual CDL (registered farm vehicle, etc).
