Thanks! I think.

One year in Lubbock at Reese AFB in USAF pilot training was more than enough for me!

each state has weird stuff, its the price you pay for your piece of serenity.

but i love texas and i pay only 3 dollars for the plates on my bus...texas loves us veterans.
so the small inconvenience to get a non com class b license is not a problem...plus...sit down....ITS FREE for me

Good for you. I'm a Vet too. And it's - sit down - free in Georgia, because no non comm class b required.

Thanks for your service.

Cheers!

I'm going to interpret that crack to mean "Thank-You for your service to our Country".

You're welcome.

Apology accepted.

I got my class B in May. Took the written test, which was 20 questions. You have to get 13 questions correct. The questions had nothing to do with driving motorhomes. I got lucky and got 14 answers right after scanning the book for about 20 minutes. There are only one or two chapters have anything to do with non-commercial class B questions. I took the written test south of Dallas on I-35. The tester told me what to do for all of the airbrake related issues. It's more of a test on the coach rather than the driver. She had me back up about 50 feet between some cones, and then we went on about a 10 minute drive through a nearby neighborhood. The only thing she marked me down on was "posture", so I passed.

Congrats! Our coach will (hopefully) be delivered in February. My plan is to take a 2 day drivers course from RVSCHOOL.COM then take the test. There is a new big drivers license office they just opened in Carrollton so I'm thinking of going there. The coach will be at NIRVC in Lewisville, just 5 minutes away.

Only hoping that 2 days of training will be enough to get the license, then the real learning can start.

... also hoping we don't have ice or snow in February

I tried that one, but the next question they asked was gross wt of vehicle. We had a Southwind that grossed at 24,000#. So no class B. Our Nimbus grosses about 48,000. Class b required.

Funny this showed up today. I just Dumped USAA after 30 years, Went with Good Sam and saved money. I mentioned I had a class A Non CDL license because I pulled a trailer with my class a GVWR 32K and got a discount. The agent said that was the next thing on the horizon.
