What kind of license do you need in California to drive a flat bed tow truck?

If it has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,001 lbs. or more, it requires a Class B CDL. If at any point you'll be towing a trailer which brings the combined truck and trailer to a Gross Combined Weight Rating of 26,001 lbs. or more and the vehicle in tow itself has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,001 lbs. or more, then a Class A CDL is required. There is no exception to this - CDL requirements are a matter of federal law.If the vehicle itself has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,000 lbs. or less, you can operate that and also tow a trailer with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 10,000 lbs. or less on a Basic Class C license. However, if your company requires you to have a hazmat endorsement, then you must have a CDL, period. In which case, you would need a Class C CDL.
