emergency door access for state inspection in va

hello,

my husband and i just bought our 1993 international thomas (body) short bus last weekend. and it has a current state inspection but for future inspections we were wondering if we would run into any issues if we put our bed in the back of the bus limiting/blocking full access to the emergency door as well as the handicap wheelchair lift door (the lift has been removed)? we are new to all this and would appreciate any help/advice. also we currently live in va, but we'll most likely be moving so we'd like any information we can get for va as well as any other states, since we're not sure where we'll be moving to-we're headed wherever the road takes us. thanks.

Re: emergency door access for state inspection in va

i found the following that relates to "doors" in the virginia MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY INSPECTION RULES AND REGULATIONS:


19VAC30-70-250. Doors.

Inspect for and reject if:

1. If each door located at the left and right side of the driver's seat is not equipped with an opening device similar to that installed by vehicle manufacturers that will permit the opening of the door from the outside and inside of the vehicle.

NOTE: A door opening device on customized vehicles may be converted to either a remote, push button or other similar opening switch.

2. If each door located to the left and right side of the driver's seat is not equipped with a latching system similar to that installed by vehicle manufacturers which will hold the door in its proper closed position.

Statutory Authority

46.2-1165 of the Code of Virginia.

Historical Notes

Derived from VR545-01-07 25, eff. May 1, 1990; amended, Virginia Register Volume 10, Issue 8, eff. February 9, 1994; Volume 12, Issue 21, eff. August 7, 1996; Volume 21, Issue 4, eff. September 22, 2004.
