Drivers License Requirements
About three years ago, we transitioned from a Holiday Rambler to a Crescendo 8356, GVWR 28,000 pounds. At the time we bought it, we were assured by the dealer that a regular NC drivers license was okay, and that we could drive it without anything else.
Not so, folks! In this state, the requirement is waived for a CDL for driving an RV, but there is still a weight restriction of 26,001 pounds for a regular (class C) NC license. For more that that weight, you must pass a written test and take a road test for a class B NC license, which is good for non-CDL vehicles with a GVWR of 26,001 or more, plus trailers up to 10,000 pounds.
So in NC, for an RV with a GVWR of 26,001 or more, you must have a class B license. Today, 42,620 miles later, I got my upgrade (it's a wonder that I never got caught)!
I wonder how other states stack up in this regard.
