I know what is required for a Class A, B, and C non CDL. That makes sense.
But that is only for recreational purposes.
There are documents stating what is required for CDLs, but nothing lists RV dealers. It's a small-ish market, so they don't specifically address it. They only exclude the recreational side of it.
What I want someone to explain is why a dealer transporting
a vehicle is commerce. They are not transporting it for money (transport companies are obviously for profit). A dealer buys a vehicle, and moves it for free, and then places it on a lot to sell for profit on the lot, not in transit.
Think about car/truck dealers, the small ones. If they go to auction and buy a vehicle, they need it on their lot. But say it's just one or two. They could just drive them as opposed to shipping them. Do they need CDLs then? Or just the proper non CDL license and a dealer license plate? It's no different than pulling a trailer that isn't for sale yet. The only difference is weight, and that can be addressed with a non CDL license.
Which is why a non CDL license can
be a replacement for a non CDL license, when properly used. Documentation: TxDPS - Classes of Driver Licenses
Documentation is needed, because otherwise there wouldn't be laws about it. That's like saying you don't need documentation for having a CHL
What is the legal definition of "in commerce" as related to CDLs?
Again, this is all for discussion. We can all spout information all day long and say "tell me why not," but it doesn't mean anything unless there's some proof for the information.
