Well, in CA, we have "Class C" which means you can drive a car. "Class M" means you can drive a motorcycle. Another class (forgot which one) means that you can drive both. So should we have one for SUVs?

they're not really that much different from driving a car...a motorcycle is quite different so i understand why you have to have a seperate endorsement...but then again...all the jerk off soccor moms that cant drive that suv worth a fvck kinda makes me lean towards yes, lol

I think people who drive hybrids should have to get a separate license.

I'm not an SUV hater.

I just hate how some people just don't know how to drive them.

They don't realize that an SUV is not like a regular car . . .

I voted yes, but I think in general it should be more difficult to get a driver's license, and you should have to take a test every year to renew it.

for the greater good?

as long as your driving skills are up to par, why would it be a big deal to take a quick 20 minute test?

as long as they don't charge you to add the endorsement...but then again...on that same token...i know how to drive a motorcycle...why should i have to get a new license just because i want to drive one?

Yeah that is what the b!tch said that just put a nice dent in my Zs fenderwell after I told her she shouldn't be allowed to drive her Navigator. Now I have to cut it out. Oh well time for flares anyway I guess.

We've already established that driving a car/truck is different from driving a motorcycle so that argument is irrelavent. I don't have a problem with have everyone retake the test every X many years...but why should SUV drivers only do it?

WHAT?!?! I would think something like 4 years . . .

AZ has is so that your license is good until you're 60 or something

My sister has college friends from AZ whose licenses say expires in 2045

yes, i was the one who established it...but also a SUV is different from a car...and noone ever said only SUV drivers would have to retake the test every X years...maybe a mandatory retake of the test when your current dl expires...with a few extra sections added if your primary vehicle is going to be a SUV...or if you need to be able to drive a SUV you take the extra sections when you renew...just like getting a motorcycle endorsement
