How do I get a chauffeurs license?
Rhode Island requires that you have a commercial drivers license with a chauffeur endorsement; an endorsement is like a specialty. To get the chauffeur endorsement, you have to pass written and road tests and hold a regular Rhode Island license for at least two years before application. In Florida, you have to get a commercial driver’s license with a passenger (P) endorsement.
In Washington D.C., cab drivers as well as chauffeurs get a chauffeurs license. Here you must supply a drivers record, criminal clearance with an FBI background check, fingerprints, proof of U.S. residency or legality, letters of reference, and a year’s worth of D.C.-licensed driving.
California requires drivers who transport more than 10 people to get a commercial drivers license; a regular chauffeur who drives fewer than 10 people simply needs a standard Class C non-commercial drivers license.
And in some states, like Hawaii, no chauffeur’s license is required at all.
States do charge extra fees for having a chauffeurs drivers license. The fee varies widely among the states. Washington, D.C., for example, charges $41.50 for the FBI background check and a $46 fee.
