Jack, one thing I forgot to mention is that I don't remember reading anything in the manual pages that made reference to air brakes for the non-comm license,it seemed to be entirely based on weights...

I'm not just sure what I'm doing as far as getting out of here...The coach needs to be here through Tuesday,but there's no guarantee I'll be going anywhere Thursday...

This change in the law will be a big surprise to a lot of poeple, including those responsible for doing the testing.

I took the test for a PA Class B non CDL this past July. A driver with a class B or higher license must be with you at the testing center. If you look at the info that came with your permit, you are not supposed to drive the vehicle without the properly licensed driver with you.

The test included checking all lights, a Pre-trip Air Brake check and the driving exam.

Thanks all for your input, but I did much research before I applied for my "learners permit" ($5 cheap). This is not a new regulation, PA has had this requirement for a long time. The problem is that the Penndot workers have no clue. I finally had to download and fill out a permit application and take it with me to the DMV, when I handed it to the clerk he said he had never heard of a Class B non-commercial license. After looking up the form number online he took my $5 and issued the permit. I've talked to PA cops that had never heard of it. Seems like a little known and understood subject. But you most definitely are supposed to have one if your rig is >26,001#. By the way I was grandfathered in years ago when the CDL started, gave it up because I didn't want to pay the additional fees. Sorry I did that now.

Ya know, now you guys have my curiosity peaked, I will ckeck this out this week. I hold a commercial A so it dosen't matter for me, but I can see the chaos it is going to creat for a whole bunch of folks.

JRR, have you checked Slicers in New Castle DE ?
Do yourself a favor and stay away from the guyz in Hamburg across the street from Cabelas, what a greasy bunch !!!!!

The thing that started my quest was reading the back of my license. Class C < 26,000# Class B >26,001# with tow <10,000# Class A > 26,001# "OR" tow >10,001#, all non commercial. Mike

Media said wasn't needed but I sure believe you. I think the start of this was the exemption on the commercial side with the MH exemption from the 26K#.
Fear not I think the site you refer to was used as hazmat dump from Cabela's build. Shaffers just south is very good. At Media for an AC Tradition.
Please let us know where you find intelligence who will do the test us in this area, Bucks.

By way If you think this is screwy. I Had to register a Cobra replica a couple of years ago. Took 5 months. Sent back once for having a license plate on back in pic. Penndot said "don't know whats under the obstruction"

Penndot and intelligence are mutually exclusive terms.
