We could sell tickets to that show!!!!

Yep! Buried. The whole manual is like that. You really have to go through it several times, and then you have to try and interpret it they way they mean it. I'm sure that other States have the same problem. I was told once by a DPS person that the "handbook" is just that, a handbook and is designed to give a user just enough information as to be able to almost safely drive a vehicle.

I don't think this is in the handbook, but did anyone know that in Texas, when a person puts his turn signal on to change lanes, he has the right-of-way? (Yeah! Right! Try that in Houston) Or, if you change lanes, you cannot legally change lanes again for 100 feet? That if you are on a feeder road and make a turn into a parking lot and cross the line near the curb if there is one, it's illegal.

My point is, that if an officer of the law is so inclined to stop you and check you out, there are thousands of reasons he can come up with. But we all know that because we read the drivers license handbook!

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Just in from the New Mexico DMV!!!!

Note that there are 35 states that do not require any extra qualifications (correction, 36).

The state of NM does not require a special license for RV drivers as
long as they are not driving for commerce. However, if you travel quite
a bit other states are not required to accept the class D for an RV. The
state of CA would require you to have at least a class E license if you
are going to be driving in their state for a period of time.

Subject:Class E license requirement
Comments:Sirs,

I am trying to determine exactly what Class of Drivers License is
required for a Recreational Vehicle owned and driven for personal
private use that is a diesel pusher, 40 feet long with a gross vehicle
weight of 32,000 pounds. I have searched through the New Mexico Code
section 18.18 &amp; 18.19 and can find no definitive requirement for
other than the Class D license.

There are some sections which when taken literally indicate that the
Class E license is required for vehicles over 26,001 pounds but the
section which excludes RVs for personal private use seems specifically
to override that requirement. I am left with the impression that the New
Mexico Legislature intended for there to be no additional requirement
beyond the Class D license for private use Recreational Vehicles and
Motor Homes. This would be consistent with SOP for 35 other states.

Can you provide clarification with specific references?

Thank You very much. Mark

She might be correct regarding NM requirements, but California, as well as all other states, has no such requirement. If you're legal in your state of residence you are legal in all other states.

lets drop this, before the idea of more taxes get to the socialist law makers. If you notice there are more traffic tickets being given out than ever before becacuse of the economy the coffers are low. herfe in florida red light cameras are going up everywhere as fast as possible. tax money!
If a lawmaker get the idea of a more expensive driver license you know it will be comming
