Converting a dual tandem to singles

Hey guys so I'm am trying to figure out if it would be worth converting my trailer to single 17.5 or selling my trailer for a new one. So here is why. I live in Texas and my trailer is farm tagged because 99% of the time it is either hay or my tractor on my trailer but yesterday I had to get a buddy of mine to get my trailer and go get some pipe for me to fix my fence. Well he didn't make it 3 miles from my ranch and a dps dot pulled him over and gave him a ticket for no cdl. Even tho he told the office that he was getting it for my ranch and he wasn't getting paid for it. So I'm concerned that when I go to use it that I will get hassled now since it is a dual tandem and I know that tagged regularly you need a cdl but I was always told that you didn't since it was farm use. So it is either change to single 17.5 so I can keep my capacity, sell the trailer or go get my cdl. Just looking for some advice

look into the law I believe the cop was wrong, this will stir up a a hole can of worms , private not for hire personal use , farm use your fine. tires have nothing to do with it
