If you’ve purchased of a 42’ or 45’ motor home, (housecar) the State of California requires that you obtain a noncommercial Class B license. Driving a motor home over 40’ without a noncommercial Class B license is driving out of class, which means you are driving illegally!
To obtain an original noncommercial Class B license, a driver must:
- Complete an application for a driver license
- Pay the application fee
- Submit a Health Questionnaire dated not more than two years prior to the date of your application
- Pass the basic Class C law test (unless you qualified for a Class C license within the past 12 months)
- Pass the Noncommercial Class B Vehicles test
- Pass a vision test
- Pass a Pre-Trip Inspection
All applicants for a Class B license are required to demonstrate knowledge of the vehicle they are driving and must express this knowledge to the DMV examiner in a specific order. We show you how to do this in the correct sequence, using the proper verbiage.
Understand an Air Brake Test
Most commercial vehicles and large diesel housecars use Air Brakes to stop. As part of the Pre-trip inspection test for a CDL, a driver must demonstrate knowledge of how an Air Brake system works and how to check it. Noncommercial Class B applicants are not required to pass this portion of the test, but all Class B Boot Camp Grads will be proficient in the Air Brake Test.
Pass a SKILLS TEST
The SKILLS TEST is designed to test how well you can maneuver a vehicle. At Class B Boot Camp we will show you:
- Forward Stop/Straight Line Backing
