This is standard in most states that have been discussed here. Texas also has the same exemption for CDL endorsements for recreational vehicles.

I was under the impression that there we no exemptions over 26k lbs.

Texas requires you to get a non-commercial license applicable to the vehicle weight if over 26k lbs, but does not require a CDL if it's a RV.

I have to admit fellas, I find all of these CDL threads rather humorous.

I can't figure out what is so difficult with understanding that it 'varies by state'. One person mentions something about one state and suddenly we are five states away - which only causes confusion.

Maybe there is another way to say "it varies by state". Maybe, "all states do not have the same rules."

Edit: I also find it humorous when people tell me I need a CDL for my bus without even knowing the state in which I am licensed/registered.

I think it’s just one of those things that isn’t very straightforward, and then people are trying to be helpful.

Heck, I was misinformed by the people that work at my county treasurer...

Why would the county treasurer know anything about CDL requirements?

Just a question I asked while inquiring about registration. They and the DMV share a wall, and I am sure get asked questions like that often. Maybe they shouldn’t be answering them...
