What kind of drivers licenses does everyone have? I ask because LONG long ago, the only time I was ever pulled over by a cop, they told me I had to have a chauffer's license. I never bothered to get one, although it did look like I had to have one. I had to renew my license 2 weeks ago, so I took the chauffer's test while I was there. It was very easy, i downloaded the info off the website and looked it over a couple times before I took the test. Only missed one or two questions. So now i guess my butt is covered in that area.

JMO I hope this dose not open up a can of worms.
Matt this is very true,also I'll take a land line any day to conduct my banking and financial issues.Land lines are for the established professional and are a necessity in the business world.Yes cells are important as well but I wouldn't give my SS number over one...JMO

I believe you have to have a chauffers license if the gross weight of the truck and loaded trailer are over 10,000lbs.
Not positive on that though. I too was pulled over and told that. But I looked it up. Plus with the chauffers license you need a medical card too. Bunch of bulls*@t if ya ask me.

Tight Angles, What kind of amp did you put in your truck with those MTX 10's. I'm looking at upgrading my system in my quadcab Dodge. I'm running Mtx 8's and a Mtx amp right now.

why do you need a chauffer's license?

Any time you are driving a commercial car/truck or using it for business you need to have one. If you are driving a vehicle with lettering on it ( company logo) you have to have one. They are so easy to get
