Question Special Drivers License?

I love the T/C motorhomes. I was just wandering if you need a CDL or any special license because of it being part truck?

I would check with your local DMV. They would have the answer for you within your State.

I do not here but I think a couple of states require a cdl based on how long or weight. I saw a site a while back that would help you, I will try to find and post here for you or just call one of the t/c dealers, they should know what is required in your state.

While a few states may require CDLs to operate an RV, most states do NOT require a COMMERCIAL driver license to operate a PRIVATE, NON-COMMERCIAL RV. Texas, for instance, requires either a Class A or B NON-COMMERCIAL driver license if you're over 26,000 lbs GCWR and towing more than 10,000 lbs (Class A) or less than 10,000 lbs (Class B). Reference Texas Transportation Code, Section 521 - Commercial licenses are covered in Section 522.

Check with your state's licensing authorities to be sure.

Go to your state DMV website or call. They will determine your license needs. It doesn't matter what state you travel to, it depends on the state in which you license the vehicle. Thats the laws that covern your vehicle in this matter.

Good Luck

MN doesn't require any special license if it's license plate says it's an rv. And I agree, I love those truck conversions.

MN is home for now.
