D Plate Vs B Plate Chicago


Can't find/get a clear set of rules and/restrictions on what plate to have.

What plate is required for a stock 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 in Chicago? Are there only certain restrictions for Cook County? Does it depend on what you will be towing?

Re: D Plate Vs B Plate Chicago


The plate is state governed. It is based on the GVW of your truck. You'll find that info on the drivers door or B pillar. Here is the weight chart for each letter plate.

Only restriction is no commercial vehicles are allowed on boulevards in Chicago.

Re: D Plate Vs B Plate Chicago


You can run either a B plate or D plate on a 2500

You will not be able to carry much payload with a B truck plate to stay within the legal limit though because the truck is close to the max weight of the B plate

I would get a d plate because it doesnít cost you that much more and you wonít have to worry about being overloaded

Problem is with a D plate I believe you need a safety inspection sticker, I have driven my truck for year without one however I know inevitably Iíll probably get pulled over for it
