You forgot that a Class A license also requires a physical evaluation. I read the federal standards that define that exam, and it specifically screens out drivers with musculoskeletal disabilities like me, with cerebral palsy.
I could bypass that with a practical skills performance assessment, but that takes time and money, and means that I would miss this bus.
It also requires someone with a class A type vehicle that is willing to let me take the DMV road test in it, which is another matter entirely.
