Any owners with GA license with 40 + DP

I am trying to find out if I would need to change my class on my drivers license to have F added. I have CM right now. I have not purchased yet, but would like to get this done before I do if I have to. I know it states up to 2600 GVW for class C

Class F is for Farm Vehicles. I don't see why you need an F added to drive an RV.

I believe Georgia went to a class E . I had a class A (tractor trailer license) in Georgia for many years and just changes to MD. I believe you will need to upgrade your license but not sure of class.

Your OK with a class C. I live in zip 30214. The code is confusing but reads up to 26k or if you have a RV it's OK. Here's the text from the states web page. There is not a non-commercial class for RV's. My MH is 40K lbs.

Good info. http://changingears.com/rv-sec-state-rv-license.shtml


Any single vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating not in excess of 26,000 pounds, any such vehicle towing a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating not in excess of 10,000 pounds, any such vehicle towing a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating in excess of 10,000 pounds, provided that the combination of vehicles has a gross combined vehicle weight rating not in excess of 26,000 pounds, and any self-propelled or towed vehicle that is equipped to serve as temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel purposes and is used solely as a family or personal conveyance.

Class E license is for non commercial truck or RV in excess of 26K pounds.
Class F license is for non commercial truck or RV in excess of 26K pounds AND a towed unit. (Also applies to farm equipment)
Check with GA DMV but it sounds like if you plan on towing you will need a class F license.

Update: after reading a couple of more posts I checked two other web sites and both were very confusing.
Best bet is to call the GA DMV

Still confusing The article is 10 yrs old so things could have changed

The paragraph and sentence in red is from the GA DOT web page.

As previously stated you are good with a valid GA DL for a privately owned MH.

Happy travels.
