'89 Liberty MCI 2 Posted July 16, 2008 Share #1 Posted July 16, 2008 I'm 16 now and I want to get a CDL when I'm 21. This is a CDL for operating a 40-foot bus like an Orion V/RTS/MCI Classic. I want to wait until then rather than get it at 18 because you need to be 18 for the single-state CDL and 21 for the interstate CDL I think. Now I know that in order to get the interstate CDL at 21 you still need to go through the other stuff in a sequence-exam for learner's permit, the real thing after, exam for driver's license, the real thing, CDL exam, then a real CDL. What I wish to know is if you first need an intrastate CDL before even getting an interstate CDL, and if you need a CDL in order to own a 40-foot transit bus. Also will the DMV come after you if your two-stroke diesel bus like an RTS or Classic spews out the black smoke that it does (though Classics I don't think smoke as badly)? Thanks.
