Cool Retired (?) Class A driving instructor 19341

Hi all, I'm in the process of getting my non-commercial Class A license in PA. One of the requirements is that someone with the same license as the Class A be in the cab with me.

How have others dealt with this? Did you go with a buddy? Ignore the requirement and just practice on your own? Get some lessons.

Love to hear folks' thoughts and recommendations, especially for a class A driving instructor (retired or active) in the Exton/Downingtown/West Chester area of PA.

thanks in advance.

Best
Mark

I didn't know PA was one of the states that had non commercial Class A requirements. My guess would be that anyone with at least the same level of license or higher could be your copilot. I am assuming you are talking about getting a permit to practice and then taking a test for the license?

I have had my Class A CDL for 30 years so I guess I better just keep it up in case Minnesota goes to that requirement. I would think with my CDL, Tanker, Doubles and Triples and Bus license I would be qualified to be your copilot. Find a truck driver that want to go camping for the weekend take a 200 mile trip and get some pointers from him.

I'm in NY with similar requirements.
I got my permit and practiced alone, including 800 mi drive home after purchasing current DP.
I found a retired town worker that had the reqd Cl B to accompany me.
Try vol fire companies, school bus drivers, town highway depth etc. A retiree will be easier to schedule but the fire co told me to check back if I had trouble and they could solicit members for availability.
CDL holders can also accompany but will likely be working unless retired. If there is a local RV club you might find a driver with the reqd endorsement.
Just start talking to friends, relatives etc to expand your network.
