First of all, thanks to the forums here I found out that to drive my motor home I have to have a class B drivers license. When I first started driving a class A motor home I researched to see if I had to, well, back then I didn't, I even downloaded the page with the information.
Well, the state of Pa. changed things. So I made a appointment way back in the middle of June I go up to my nearest Penndot drivers license center and pay my $5. get a permit to drive for a year and to take a test to get a class B. At the time the fellow ask me "do you have air brakes?" I said yes, he said "they would ask a few questions on air brakes".
Fine, so I schedule a appointment for Aug 20, I download Penndot's commercial air brake study guide, no problem, for us who know air brakes, it is common knowledge, I have over 40 years operating vehicles with them.
I got up yesterday, 9:15 was my time, brought in what they required, sat there until 10:20. I asked what's the problem was, they had to call Harrisburg to find out how to run a test on a non-comm. class B!!! What a bunch of idiots! Finally, walk out to the parking lot with the tester, he asked me questions on what I do before a trip, checks the lights and away we go for a drive and back. I passed with 100% but point is, they just play it by ear and don't have a established test to go by! I was asked no questions on air brakes, PennDot has always been screwed up, how about your state?
