For the sake of this conversation, I don't see anywhere that you are required to have a class D for any straight truck (personal use), any recreational vehicle, or any SUV or combination. The first two appear as exemptions and the SUV is not covered by a Class D license as it pertains directly to "Truck or Truck Tractor" by definition.

Nor do I see anywhere that when you are towing a personal trailer (boat) with a "straight truck" do you need a Class D as covered in 322.53 (5) exemption by definition of "commercial vehicle" in 322.01 (8). I believe this is also where you get the right to drive a u-haul box (straight truck) without having a special license if you are hauling tanagable items not for sale.

In answer to the out of state drivers, I believe the 322.53 (d) and (e) state "drivers" so their permission would come from that definition.

However, I believe Formula is correct in the soon to be deleted Class D as in Senate Bill sb1526c2 because there is some confusion/conflict between the statute of 8K GVW and less than 26K GVW.

While exemptions apply to "commercial vehicles" as defined you will notice that they are vehicles or combinations over 26K GVW in 322.01.

Now are they ramdomly pulling poeple over in these type of trucks, for no reason but to do a DL check? If so wouldn't that be harrasment if you did have the license for it(I run a class A) so not worried just the pain to pull over and be checked and set free for the FLhp.

I believe they must have probable cause (PC) to pull anyone over for anything. However, there could be a loose definition to that depending on the law enforcement agency.

Again, I have never seen or heard of anyone being ticketed for a personal vehicle regardless of GVW because as you can see there are plenty of exemptions the apply.

I'm Class A as well. We are held to a much higher standard but I guess that comes with the territory.

Yep that class A is a little higher in standards, and punishment as well.
