No A, B or commercial license renewed on-line. Glad this came up, I need to renew mine soon.

No idea how Wayne M managed it. I got my Class-A in 2015. My renewal came up in 2016 and I was definitely blocked from online-renewal.

The in-person renewal took about 3.5 hours out of Austin, TX... At least it's done.

I also did a follow up post. My bad!

I heard them telling CDL holders they couldn't renew on-line. Don't know how that translates to the Class B RV license.

I don't think they really consider the non-CDL case when making the rules. They sure don't consider it when deciding what tests to give you.. :-)

When I walked in to get my wait-in-line ticket, basically I was told "that Class-A Non-CDL is going to blow their minds". Lots of funny looks when I asked to renew it... They asked me what I drove and I told him a Honda Civic..

That's funny. Did you tell them your other vehicle was a house?

I had a similar experience in Austin at the 183N DPS office. Take a number and wait. They gave me the wrong test the 1st time. Then when I wanted a driving test, they said 3 weeks. I called Marble Falls and they said they could do a walk-in the next day. No driving the RV into Austin and only 20 min from my house. I showed up at 8 AM and there were 2 driving test in front of me. Said come back at 10. I drove the RV down to the Bluebonnet Cafe, had breakfast, then drove it back for the test. I will never go to the Austin DPS again, even though it is 2 min from my office. It only took me about 18 years to discover this.

I took my driving test in Waco this afternoon. After the ordeal of taking the written test in Temple, this was a pleasant surprise. I got there a little early and had to wait for my 2 pm appointment, but the examiner started pretty much on time and we were done about 40 minutes later. The first thing she did was check my insurance, registration and inspection form. Then she performed a vehicle inspection and ran me through the brake test. The backing and parallel parking test was pretty easy since you are using the commercial truck lanes for it and it's wide open. A 20 minute spin around town and we were done.

Mine on Wednesday here in Ft Worth was similar to barmcd's. Commercial rules test was worst part and the least relevant to us.

If you want a smooth, fast process with folks that know the ins and outs of motorhomes, go to Livingston, TX - home of the Escapees RV Club. They do this all the time.

Good luck with that. I tried over 100 times to call their office. I drove down from Terrell and they stated they forward their calls to Austin because they are so busy. I'm a resident of Livingston and they said they could not schedule a driving test for at least 6 weeks. Wasn't one person in their office but I had to check in on a kiosk and wait for a text telling me to come to counter. I drove 200 miles back up to Terrell and took the driving test in Canton. However when I went to the tax office in Livingston it was an excellent experience. Quick, professional and no waiting.
