Re: Legal Requirements for Party Skoolies

Well, I have one operating in Oregon of you have any questions.

I have been looking for information (laws) on what is required for converting a school bus into a party bus. I know this is extremely dependent on what state you're living in but I'm assuming that a lot of states are somewhat similar. I'm trying to convert my 1998 International school bus into a party bus. So far, I have completely re-outfitted the bus in the following ways:
-Bus has been legally titled as a "motor home" and is currently insured with the standard RV coverage rate of $1 million.
-Has living quarters, cooking area, bathroom and other requirements to make it comply with being an RV.
-School bus decals, stop lights, stop arms, yellow paint (and all other "school bus" specific items have been removed).

With that being said, what other requirements will I need to have in order to rent this bus out and allow individuals (over 21 of course) to consume "their own" alcohol on the bus. I am not interested in selling or distributing any alcohol so I'm thinking that will keep me away from needing a liquor licence. I'm guessing I'm going to run into some problems around Department of Transportation (DOT) laws with being "for hire" or something. Also, I currently have a chauffeurs licence, but I keep hearing that because the bus has air brakes and a GVW of 31,000 lbs I may need a CDL with a "P" endorsement, and then other people are saying that because the bus is no longer a "school bus" you can skate by without the CDL "P" endorsement?

Thanks for the info, lets see who knows their stuff out there!
