I was wrong about the class "B" CDL in my own state. I've seen it in the regs, that for personal use does not require an air brake endorsement. All my life I've been told I would have to have a class B license if I drove anything with air brakes. I was told that RV drivers had to get air brake endorsements on their licenses. Sometimes it easier to be wrong.
From what I hear crossing the border in various countries does require air brake endorsement, so it's a good backup plan if you plan to go international at all.

NOT correct.. i had an in depth discussion with a real person in OHIO about CDL and about what requirements.. this person also recently lived in MICHIGAN so they knew their requirements too..

if you are registered as an RV / Motorhome no CDL needed...

if your Bus is a BUS still and in OHIO has LESS than 16 seat positions INSTALLED (including driver) and is LESS than GVWR 26001 lbs then NO CDL needed..
in MICHIGAN removing seats does not reduce capacity.. they go on DESIGN..

in OHIO if my bus is OVER 26000 lbs GVWR (thats the plate RATING.. not actual weight) then you need a CDL class B unless it is registered as an RV / Motorhome//

in OHIO you do NOT need a medical certificate with your CDL B if you are operating your vehicle within the state.. want to take it out of state? then you woiuld need to file a medical Cert,

in OHIO. if your vehicle requires a CDL and has air brakes you need an air brakes endorsement..

in OHIO if your vehicle has less than 16 seats AND is less than 26000 lbs GVWR you can register it as a standard passenger car... regardless of air brakes.. thats personal use..

in OHIO registering as an RV / Motorhome then you are NOT required for any CDL on any size vehicle and need no ebndorsements..

Remember- EVERY state is different when it comes to licenses. What goes in one state, doesn't necessarily go in another. USDOT CDL guidelines are just that, guidelines.

I agree each STATE is different.. like i pointed out the difference just between ohio and michigan, in ohio if you take out the seats your capacity is reduced.. in michigan they go on design capacity period...

Not trying to continue the pissing contest?? Build,insure,inspect and tag buy your states rules and as long as you are good in the state you live in they can't muck with you.(unless you let them).
I live In a military area and my state (not the bases) have a problem with the window tint allowed by other states? But as long as there license plate and all is good in that state. Then they can't fail it?
New discussion for military personell is that there vehicle has to be inspected in the state it is registered in every year (state money)which means that vehicle? Even a deployed man/woman owns has to do inspection in that state every year? Whether they are deployed for years or not???? because there is no set federal regulation (more money)
Got a knew to me truck 3-months ago from South Carolina and the bases had no problem but state inspection time last week I had to scrape the tint off to get an inspection but that was because the company put NC tags on it when they gave it to me.
I didn't care I was getting paid by the hour to get an inspection?
I hate to say it but there should be a slandered across the board? At least for me?
From NC to TEXAS!!!?

thats part of the problem is that ervery state is different... so yes when you buy a vehicle across state lines things are different...

then there are the wierd things.. my bus was once titled in ohio so because of that when I retitle it back to ohio it does not ha e to be inspected.. i guess they feel because oit once passed ohio rules it still will...

then you have california.. look at the poor souls who buy vehicles in other states and take them to california only to find out they cannot pass california CARB regulations.. ..

or bu ya vehicle in a state that has no annual emisions inspectiopn and register it in a state that does only to find out it fails.. yet you think it shoudl pass since it was on the road for years in another state...

You back home now Cadillac?

Even some of the stuff you buy in California can't be operated there. Surprisingly the export only equipment doesn't go all that cheap.

from what I understand exporting used busses is big business.. when you think about it tens of thousands of busses are retired from school service every year .. yet you dont see repurposed school busses all over the place. . theres only so many secondary schools, churches, skoolies, etc..

im told thousands are sent overseas to farms and what not..

granted there are also lots of people similar to myself that use school busses as personal / fun transport.. on this site we see mostly people who are making RVs or homes but there are lots of 'Fun busses' out there..

I am not home yet.. I made it about 400 miles and blew my Air Compressor.. so im chillin waiting on parts and doing my work as usual.. alas the Mobile DEV lab is in a hotel room at the moment..
