What about a fire truck or possibly a farm tractor trailer that stays within 150 miles? No cdl needed on farm trucks, am I correct? I know Kentucky doesn't require it for farm trucks. What about other states?

I was going to suggest this right here but Susan beat me to it. Your couple could drive a farm truck assuming you can find a farmer willing to let them, it would of course have to only be driven within 150 miles of the farm which means teaming would be a bit pointless. As far as I know the rulings on that is US wide so not state restricted so they could do some different farms around the US if need be for your show

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

I would suggest you contact some production companies. There may be ways they know of for filming purposes.

Well, I do have long hair, but I think the beard disqualifies me from babe status. Unless we are having a bearded lady contest. I'm going to assume that comment was for Susan though. rofl-3.gifrofl-3.gifrofl-2.gifrofl-1.gif

Yeah but you still need a valid driver's license, and I have no idea if they would accept a foreign license or international license.

What happens if someone from Austria comes to the U.S. and wants to rent a car to drive around? Isn't their native license accepted? I've never thought about this situation and I'm curious how rental car companies do it ???????????

Could they rent a Penske?

Not sure but GUESSING CDL is different.

When going to the UK in the 90's with my boss, I got an International DL through AAA. Pretty much just a document which listed my driving credentials and asked in about 20ish languages that they accept it. (I think it referred to some International treaty and asked that the foreign country recognize my State-issued license).

When we needed a car, my boss got one delivered to our hotel. He pulled out his IL DL and AMEX card... signed a form or two and off we went! Don't know but I suspect that magic "International DL" was more of a unicorn than anything!
