I just went to the scdmv with a title transfer request. Confused the hell out of three people but they accepted it with no pictures or anything. I requested that they mail the title instead of print it out right there. Big mistake. Itís been 8 weeks and I JUST NOW have been informed theyíve finally released it to be mailed to me as an rv instead of bus. So all in all it was very easy with no proof of conversion but took some time for the title to be changed over. YMMV

Is it better to have changed into an rv title?

Unless you have a cdl, definitely. You canít legally drive a school bus unless itís changed over. Plus insurability and taxation advantages.

You can't legally drive a school bus "for profit or commercial use" without a CDL. You don't need to change anything over to drive it.

The reason you want the title change to RV is because most insurance companies will not insure it as a bus, but will as an RV after at least 4 of the 6 criteria are met.Standard procedure is to obtain a "commercial for private use" policy while converting and then once finished, convert the title and insure as RV or MH.

Why then, do you need a cdl to drive a church bus? Is that technically commercial? Iíve always assumed that a cdl was needed on that basis but could be wrong, itís happened before. A lot.

Schools and Churches are considered commercial if it can carry 16 passengers.

It varies by state. Here in WA, if it will seat 16 or more people, you must have a CDL regardless of what you are using it for.

That is the law here.

I live in NC, but have thought of using my SC address to register my city transit bus because NC still has "safety and emissions inspections. SC doesn't have "smog & emissions" inspections.

NC does meet the Federal clean air standards and was considering discontinuing these taxes, but the "State Inspection" stations are private businesses and hired lobbyist to continue the theft from vehicle owners.
