South Carolina Class F License

Thought maybe others may be interested in this. Today I passed my S.C. Class F skills and road test. Interesting process.

Like others have shared, when getting your permit, you may need to educate the DMV staff on what a Class F is. Many are not aware. One even suggested I didn't need a special license. You do need to take a eye test, and the written test. Suggest you study for it. Lots of it you already know, stop sign, school crossing etc,,, but some you need to study like how far behind the vehicle to you place your reflectors if you break down, etc.

The pre inspection, was a cake walk. No chassis checks underneath, no fluid checks, lights (even high beams and 4 ways) were checked by them. It included a test of the low air alarm, and when pressure dropped below 40 that the brakes applied. The tester tells you what to do. This was all done with my trailer attached. I sat in the drivers seat, and they did the checking.

The skills test was harder than I expected. They are very close tolerances, it will test your skills. I have many, many Rv and big trailer miles, and I had to focus on this. It is not so easy. It is tight spaces, and going out of bounds fails you. This was done without the trailer.

The road test wasn't bad, but we drove for almost 30 mins. This was with the trailer reconnected. Lots of intersections, rights, lefts, changing lanes, ect.. I did fine, but it was much longer and there were lots of places to mess up.

I took the test in Chester. The tester had it all written and diagramed, I assume it is a standard test state wide.

Hope this helps others who are interested in this. It is all not real well documented as they suggest you study the CDL manual for this test, yet it is pretty different.
