    Sounds like someone is half a step away from having a breath analyzer to start their car....

    You know what’s crazy? The guy just got his license a month ago and he’s 20 years old!

    Not so crazy, I didn't get my DL until 21 due to it being suspended and revoked for driving without and other infractions...LoL.
    If he's only 20, that might be where the K restriction comes from. Don't you need to be 21 to run interstate?
     
    Diesel Dave and NavigatorWife Thank this.

    I think you do have to be 21. I was referring to the breathalyzer if that’s what that code is (24). Lol

    Are you certain it’s 24/K and not 40/K?

    Yes. I looked at the copy that they took of the license a couple of times and it’s 24K for sure.

    Ok here is some info for you that is correct.

    The 24 is about vision restrictions and the need for vision testing every 6 months.

    The driver has a vision problem and should have a six month dot.

    The K means this .... K - If the State is notified by the FMCSA that a medical variance has been issued to the driver, the State must indicate the existence of such a medical variance on the CDLIS driving record and the CDL document using a restriction code "V" to indicate that there is information about the medical variance on the CDLIS record.

    This is from the licensing book from the state of California, I have a hard copy and asked for it.


    Everything you guys posted is wrong by the way, the breath analysiser thing comes from the state of mass and the k comes from another state .... neither are California.
