Got mine in Livingston--not much of a deal, but really have me nervous that I would fail. The license itself only difference is the A instead of C on it. I got docked for not stopping correctly at a residential intersection--stopped before the intersection as if there was an actual white line, then proceeded. Was supposed to stop AGAIN before actually entering the intersection. Both hands on the wheel ALL the time. The straight-line backing had to be done by mirrors only, did not have to park in any manner, except when returning to the station, and that was a straight-in deal. If you hit a curb anywhere, auto fail--I came REAL close at one point.
It's over and good till 2023, at which time I will be 80 and maybe time to reconsider the FT lifestyle.

My test was pretty easy also. I got close to a curb on a very narrow road but just missed it. Also, stopping behind the white line at intersections and then moving forward is tuff if you're not used to it. My wife had been "coaching" me on that for a couple weeks, so I was prepared for it. I had one instance, where the light turned yellow and I was in "no man's land" - too far to race through the light and too close to stop behind the line. I hammered down on the brakes and came to a stop just past the whiteline. I told the inspector, that stop was going to cost me some points, but she laughed and said, nope. Would have cost me points if I tried going through it.

Overall, a pretty painless process, except for the waiting in the long line at the DPS.

He needs the A since his rv is over 10K gvwr. Study , study, trick questions sometimes. You take the driving test with the combo truck/rv that meets test requirements . Be sure and do the pretrip check as that's a gotcha. If on road test and you are told to make a turn crossing those yellow striped turn lane, don't use it to merge. You must turn onto the actual travel lane. We hang with a former road tester now truck safety inspector for the State.
