Our rig weighs 13.5k loaded meaning, in Ca, that I am required to get an endorsement on my Class C (details). It has been low on my priorities and I simply forgot.

Luckily my driver license was up for renewal and required a physical visit to the dmv for new photo, finger-print, and vision test. As I was finishing up the process I remembered the endorsement. Took the lady a while to find the proper testing form and I passed it first shot with no studying (common sense stuff) even though one of the test questions was inaccurate (it asked how often I would be required to submit a Health Questionnaire - their answer was 2 years, proper answer is zero according to DMV website).

So now I am legal! Have the sticker and everything

Don't you hate those drivers license pictures! They never look like you!



And the "behind the wheel" test is tough too....

Class C is good for 10k (trailer), there is a recreational endorsement that allows rv 5ers up to 15k. Bumper pull over 10k, gooseneck over 10k, non rv 5ers over 10k , and rv 5er over 15k requires class A. Doubles is only an option with a class A.

The Class C endorsement is a piece of cake - no driving required.
Above 15K requires non-Commercial Class A = written -and- driving test.

It will catch up with you - many (other) states now have the same req's.

BTW - hope they all do it!
Way too many drivers who are unqualified for what they are driving/towing.

Of course you are super qualified, so the life the test saves (because the other guy had to be tested) - may be your own!.

That doesnt sound very rigorous to me. Did he get a cape for passing it?
