Re: Regulations in Washington

If it's for hire, hauls 15 or more people and is titled as a bus a CDL is mandatory, if it's titled as a RV, not for hire, and is used only for personal use a regular license should be all that is necessary.
If this is a for profit undertaking, you should probably talk to your insurance agent, accountant, attorney, bailbondsman, state police, and DMV to try to stay out of trouble.
Commercial liability insurance is going to cost major$$$.

Re: Regulations in Washington

usually the most economical way is to convert your bus to a rv and then retitle as a rv to get the best insurance rate, 15 nonpaying passengers in propr seats should not be a problem, still check with your local public servants for their opinion.
