Like I said multiple times in my post, it depends on your state's regulations. If that was unclear regarding the CDL, I apologize. I don't claim to be an expert by any means. All I know is in WI/MN if the vehicle can seat
16 or more passengers one is required to be in possession of a CDL. As CaptSquid said, please check with your local authorities about registration/title/insurance/license requirements. I called two of my local DMVs and one in MN (where I bought the bus) and actually explained what I wanted to do, as well as researched on the DMV websites before I purchased the bus.
P.S. If someone tells you your current insurance will cover a new vehicle/bus purchase that may or may not be true. I called my insurance to check specifically regarding a bus and they said it would not be covered.
