I don’t agree that the CHP’s license stops are unconstitutional. What authority do you have other than a quote from the federal Constitution?

Vehicle Code Section 2400 (b) The commissioner shall enforce all laws regulating the operation of vehicles and the use of the highways except that, on ways or places to which Section 592 makes reference, the commissioner shall not be required to provide patrol or enforce any provisions of this code other than those provisions applicable to private property.


In 1979 the Supreme Court ruled in Delaware vs. Prouse that stopping a vehicle simply to check a driver's license violates the 4th Amendment.

Never underestimate a petty bureaucrats ability to find ways to make rules for the express purpose of making themselves seem needed.

NC runs license checkpoints all the time. Usually on 2 lane roads near large neighborhoods and small towns. As many people are driving without them (or insurance) anymore I fully support the practice.

While I cannot answer OP's question, are the laws for such licenses for residents of that state only? Kinda crazy if someone is passing thru or staying in such a state and his/her state does not require a "X" type of license but that state does. Sorta like a very small road in Syracuse that's off limits to commercial trucks which includes pick-ups (not all, but most). However, a DPW pick-up (same type as mine) can travel down same road that I cannot. Can a out of stater (non CDL RV holder)be ticketed in a state that requires a Non CDL RV license?

You just have to be properly licensed for your home state.

I think the real rub is if you are ever involved in a traffic incident and you are not properly licensed you could be in a world of hurt. Both insurance and LE.

So your advice is to just break the law and if you get caught, lie. Nice.
