Thanks, Dtwallace. Common sense indicated that would be the case, but we all know better than to rely on that when dealing with public servants.

let me clarify... Any bumper pull rv trailer over 10k.

Pre-inspection is not that bad if you study for it. Where is the 50% failure rate published? If you prepare a little, there shouldn't be a big problem.

No written documentation, only comments made from the inspector after I breezed thru it.

Your buddy's situation is what made me get the required license. That cop should have given him a fix it ticket but that's the guy going for a promotion.
I think the CHP are trying to limit their liability, once they know sending the driver on his way could become an issue with an accident.

True except in 3 states. Reprocicity doesn't apply in Colorado. I'm guessing with other two states and my memory recalls Arkansas and Mass, but I'll find it and edit if incorrect.

Here is a list of the states that are a part of the Driver License Compact that recognize driver's licences issued by the driver's home state.

And my state of Tennessee is not in your list. Does that mean Tennessee doesn't recognize driver licenses from other states? Or that no other state recognizes a Tennessee driver license? The TSA does recognize a Tennessee license.

I think you are confusing this pact with something it isn't,

The Driver License Compact is an interstate compact used by States of the United States to exchange information concerning license suspensions and traffic violations of non-residents and forward them to the state where they are licensed known as the home state. Its theme is One Driver, One License, One Record. The home state would treat the offense as if it had been committed at home, applying home state laws to the out-of-state offense. The action taken would include, but not be limited to, points assessed on a minor offense such as speeding and suspension of license or a major violation such as DWI/DUI. It is not supposed to include non-moving violations like parking tickets, tinted windows, loud exhaust, etc.

It is (Not) meant to restrict the privilege to operate in other states what you are legally licensed to operate in you home state.

The only restrictions that I've been aware of is where one state's legal driving age, and authorized times of operation come into play.

Those restrictions are note when ever that person is issued the restricted license.

(Except as expressly required by provisions of this compact, nothing contained herein shall be construed to affect the right of any party state to apply any of its other laws relating to licenses to drive to any person or circumstance, nor to invalidate or prevent any driver license agreement or other cooperative arrangement between a party state and a nonparty state.)

Dan, you're right on. The list I'm referring to, although, I can't seem to find, is the differences by state that other states accept based on the drivers home state.
For example, California's max height for a towed trailer is 14'. However Colorado's max is only 13'. Technically, the Colorado highway patrol could cite you, if exceeding their height limit because they don't recognize Reprocity.
On the other hand, CA max combined length is 65'. If I drove through Indiana where their max is 60', they wouldn't cite me based on the fact that I'm licensed in CA and they are one of 47 states that allow for Reprocity.

Ok, yes sir I see where you're getting this info now.

This is based on commercial vehicle standards and not the driver license. You are absolutely correct and can find this info under vehicle standards (FMC) federal motor carriers codes for each state.

A truckers atlas has all the info, as does the FMC booklet you can purchase at any truck stop.

So basically, you just need to separate drivers license requirements from excepted vehicle operation in the aforementioned states.

Hope that clears it up.
