Two criteria are at play. Number of passengers and Type of brakes.

The Semi has air brakes and a trailer-- Class A.
The charter bus has air brakes and carries more than 15 passengers-- Class B w/ Passenger endorsement.
The tow-truck is odd- I assume that requires liability and specialized equipment certification.
The RV must not have air brakes nor be designed to seat more than 15 persons.

Long wheel-base and high-mass is all it shares with the top two that is relevant to driving skills.

I`m licensed to drive all of those vehicles. With that considered, I definitely think a special license should be required to drive a large RV. Most states will go by weight. I think a class C provisional license in Oregon is good up to 26,000 lbs. For reference to that weight, I`ve driven down the road hauling 103,000 lbs (requires special permits for that load).

I agree with Angilion. An extension of a normal license would make perfect sense for an RV driver. They are huge and it is nothing like driving anything smaller. I was nervous enough driving a 26` moving truck with no instruction. I wouldn`t even consider driving an RV without some lessons.

True, but maybe it should also be about the size of the vehicle. Driving a bus-sized RV isn`t entirely the same as driving a car. I think it would be fair to require additional proof of competence for driving larger vehicles. Maybe more an extension on a standard licence rather than a completely different licence.

I have to say, RV drivers should have to have a special license. They are just as dangerous as a bus.

"its not about the size of the vehicle, its about what the purpose of the vehicle is for"

That applies to things like minibuses (up to 16 seats) here in the UK... can drive them on a car licence as long as you`re not being paid for it in any way. If you`re just getting your running costs paid for driving passengers from a private club, then you can apply for an easy to get permit.

Anything for profit and you need a different licence.



There`s some rule about vans/minibuses with double rear axles too, but I can`t remember that.

now it varies from state to state, but im pretty sure you need a special a license just to operate a taxi. its not about the size of the vehicle, its about what the purpose of the vehicle is for, and also if there are ten or more seats or something like that.
