    You might want to check it out, I believe it will show as intrastate only if that's what you've checked. I know as a driver under 21 intrastate is listed as a restriction on your license, you might need to check that you're not showing a restriction of intrastate only.

    I don't understand why that should matter anyway. Do you have a class 'a' cdl ?

    ok, if you are under the age of 21, you can only drive intrastate as you should know. your license will look differently too. instead of being wide, it'll be tall. when you turn 21, you turn that in for the "wide" license. i wish i had pics, id' show you what i mean. now, if you are OVER the age of 21 then you should have no restrictions as to whether or not you can cross state lines. now, other than the look of the license, there may very well be a restriction on it depending on how your state does this.

    so you really need to get to your DMV and get this straightened out.

    Jason123 check your loca DMV. Leanright there is a difference.Intrastate is when a driver doesn't leave a state. Interstate is crossing a stateline.
