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.
