North Carolina?

So, Iíve been reading a lot on converting a bus. Really torn between a short or mid size bus at the moment.

I currently do not have CDLís and as Iím color blind, Iím not sure I can even obtain them. So that leads to my next question - Iíve seen that you can retitle your bus as an RV.

Iíve been trying to contact the DMV with no luck at the moment. Iíve been getting no response and only automated messages. I canít find anything definitive on the website either.

Do I need CDLís to drive my bus in NC? What about insurance? And how do I go about retitling said bus?

Thanks everyone in advance!

your NC drivers license allows you to drive anything up to 26000 gvw.
and as long as you are not using your bus to make money you do not need any special license like a cdl.
not even an air brake endorsement.
both of my buses are insured through nationwide as
bus for personal use in a commercial policy.

CDL is only required if it has seating for 16 or more, take the seats out and you're good to go.
