Our best friends that we run around with both work at Tx DPS.They say this upgrade on DL is coming from the FED level tied to highway dollars..No matter where you are a resident,would pay to check for any changes to your states regs.
Its confusing here when you first read the new regs,1st page says operators of private RV's exempt from the CDL requirements,then a few pages further you find that if combined GVW exceeds 26000lbs then you are not exempt and are required to add "A" endorsement or go to CDL.
