Russian term or phrase: составы транспортных средств с тягачом
This is on a Russian driver's license. I am wondering about the function of составы here. I am tempted to translate the phrase as simply "vehicles with trailers". Does anyone know if there is a standard translation for this Russian phrase?
PIngalls
Combination vehicles
Explanation:
"Vehicles with trailers" works in this context (I looked at the Russian driver's license application online).
On several U.S. driver's license applications, however, they use the term "combination vehicles" in the same context:

http://www2.state.id.us/itd/dmv/cdl.htm

CDL License Classes
Class A - Combination vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being towed is greater than 10,000 pounds. A driver with a Class A license may, with the proper endorsements, operate vehicles requiring a Class B, C or D license.

Classified Driver’s License
A-Combination Commercial Motor Vehicles over 26,000 lbs
B-Single Commercial Motor Vehicles over 26,000 lbs
C-All Other Commercial Vehicles and Buses

Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

components


Explanation:
"component" could also be another translation for the word "состав", possibly referring to the various "components", i.e. trailer, which could be added to a vehicle with this particular license.
