Illinois Class C NON-CDL road test Info

Hello all, I will be taking my Class C NON-CDL road test on Tuesday and was wondering for those that have one what to expect. I will be using a 26ft U-haul since my grandfather wont be in town with his RV to use which is the reason why I'm getting it to drive around the county with him starting in Oct.

Any help/info would be great

Thanks
Don

First you have to take a written test. Get the study booklet to review material. Make sure you have a proper licensed buddy to go with you for road test. They will ask how you got rig there for test. Check all lights and safety equipment (portable reflectors in case you stall on roadway) and fire extinguisher. Use seat belts and make sure you use turn signals, even when turning out of parking lot. Good Luck!!

Sounds stricter than New York. I just got my RV endorsement two months ago. It is only needed if your rig is over 26,000lbs gvw or is 40 ft in length or greater. $10 for the permit and a road test thru a parking lot and a few side streets. No highway run, no written test. Apparently in NY so few operators get the endorsement that it took the lady at DMV almost 50 minutes total to put it on my liscence!

Thanks, the state of IL is kinda screwy. I got my permit which was easy once I read the booklet and paid the $5.00. I can rent the truck with just my class D license and drive it with no issue for the test as along as I show insurance for the truck. I contacted the state to double check before I got the reservation and they said it was ok as long as it met the gross weight 16,000 - 26,001. I'm going to check it all out and drive it around for about 30 mins before going in to take the test so I can get comfortable in it.

I took the Illinois test read the book. Did the written test at Elston Ave. and the drive test in Elk Grove. Drive test I was alone no questions. Did quick road check in parking lot and had me drive around the block. His main interest was that I didn't run over a curb on the turns. Good luck not to worry.
