Sounds like these items are pretty standard, as I had the same list from the FL DMV. Same process, too, for the registration: get it done, go to DMV showing receipts of all that you have on the skoolie + proof of ins, sign an affidavit that you did what you did, drive away with rv registration.

Haven't done this myself, yet, but that is my plan

Congrats on your skoolie!

My gross was adjusted at the dmv...
I don't know if I really want to title mine as an RV/Motorhome. I may just keep it titled as is and call it my "live in mobile office".

ECCB, is it titled as a school bus then? Thats illegal in Illinois lol

noobie, That sounds exactly like my process maybe FL and IL aren't so different after all.

I will call soon and ask if we really need inspection or if we can just bring pics/receipts. That would be a HUGE time saver since I don't think those kind of inspectors are readily available.

Any have there bus inspected for registration requirements?

And actually, i fear the city to be more of a PITA then county/state....someone already called the cops on my skoolie being parked in the front yard, so now I fear I've been branded! Deuches....-_-

Wish you all the best! Break a leg!

Unless you live on a farm, like SOME of us ;)

Even on the farm, I've still had a little bit of drama...
It really seems to disturb some people that others would own such machines.

Another IL noob

My wife and I plan to by some form of R.V. before next year. I like the idea of using an old bus to build my own. Like everyone else, I'm on a limited budget and don' want to buy a bus only to have to spend thousands right off converting it so I can drive it.
I assume by what I've read so far that it's illegal for me to drive a large bus without a CDL unless it is titled/tagged as an R.V.? So I therefore assume that my first obstacle will be getting one home after I buy it. My second hurdle I assume will be getting the inspection done once I "convert" it. Do I have to somehow get the bus to Springfield for the inspection or will they come to me? Or possibly, if I pick a small town DMV, will they just take my word for it?
Thanks guys. I really want to go with a bus but I don't want to get stuck with a yard ornament I can't drive or insure. Any help or advise is greatly appreciated.
