    Just a little harder than capitalizing and using punctuation.

    Thank you doghead, since I am new I will be nice. I always had problems in school with that. And spent many years being made fun of for it...if you wish to poke fun then enjoy it. I herd it all and am numb to it. that is all.

    Maxtor,

    First download the most current DMV commercial handbook. Study it very well. Also, bone up on standard driver's laws. If you don't have it already, get trained up to drive a large and heavy truck.

    To get the Class B permit (this portion is all written) good for one year you will have to take at minimum:
    1. Standard Driver's Test
    2. Commercial Driver's Test
    3. Air Brake Test
    4. Obtain a medical card.

    Too get Class B license (hands on in the seat, in front of a DMV inspector):
    1. Perfrom a Pre-Trip Inspection
    2. Skills Test (i.e. backing, parallel parking, docking)
    3. Road Test
    Some notes here: IMPORATNT...make sure you show up to the DMV with a fully licensed driver or else. Don't test in an MV. Rent a truck that is OVER 26K lbs gross (Weekend mover trucks don't count), standard shift and air brake equipped because you don't want those restrictions.

    This process may sound difficult, but it really is not.

    Our M923a2 is a 1989. Our insurance company is Farmers. They have another underwriter insure it under their classic policy. The only restriction they have is that the truck must be housed in a garage of some type. They only insure with full coverage, not just PLPD. $59 a year is a great price for full coverage. I would be happy with just PLPD.

    I pay a lot more than that per truck for just liability with a $300,000 injury policy

    We're paying $750 per year just liability with State Farm on a commercial policy, but don't have a garage to try and get a better rate. Seems like all the insurance companies that will insure as classic or historic need you to store in a lockable garage.

    Gulfway does not have a "garage" clause last I checked.
