SC Class F Driverís License HELP

HELP Please...

We just moved to SC and understand I need to obtain a SC Class F Driverís License.

I went to the local SC DMV and the first person told me I needed a CDL License (and gave me forms to fill out for a CDL), second person said I needed a Class F License, which aligns with the SC WEB site. I was also told Iíd need to take a Knowledge test, Off-Road and On-Road tests. When I asked for a Class F Driverís License handbook, I was told to read the CDL manual, it covers Class F.

Today I called SC DMV, a central information, just to confirm a few things, after two transfers, I was told not to read the CLD Manual, just read the General Driverís License manual, it covers Class F.

Kinda feeling like ďWhoís on FirstĒ

Iíve downloaded both manuals from the SC DMV website, while both manuals list the existence of a class F license, neither manual provides any specific information about what I really need to know.

I would like to get the scoop, and maybe talk, to someone thatís actually taken the tests for a SC Class F Driverís License.

SC Class F license

Read through this thread linked below, but my specific reply is #10.

I took all the tests and now hold the SC Class F license. As others have also commented, the DMV examiners may or may not be very familiar with motorhomes, and some really may not be familiar with Class 8 trucks although they administer the CDL exams.

Check my link in the post for the locations where the Class F is administered, as some places give the knowledge test but not the on-road test. Go there with your rig and practice on a weekend.
