Maximum # people in a car
Hi crew! I'm from Spain and I'm planing a ski trip in California, but I have a essential doubt. How many people can go
in a car at the same time if I have a normal driver license (in Spain
it's called B license)? I think I will rent a van of 12 pax, but I don't know if I can't drive it.
one person per seat belt?

I think hes talking about the license
Ski Dubai in the off season
Real Resorts in winter!
Surfing whenever possible!
MTB everywhere in between!
(leaving room for girl ofc)
In a Spain, with the B license, I can the maximum number of people in a car is 7. So I don't know if I can drive a 12 pax van
in america it goes by vehicle size, so if you get a large van you should be fine. my dad drove the largest vehicle allowed by a regular license, which was a van a bit bigger then an ice cream truck for work once.

you have to be at least 21 to rent a car in the states.
Ok! Thank you for the help!
I think I will rent a Ford E-150 12 PAX. I thing it isn't too large. The rental company said me I could drive it but I wasn't sure.
Yes, I know, I'm 24. I have to pay $25 everyday in this case
well, this is completely unrelated but i once shared a bus seat with 7 other people. it warmed us up.
Uhm...Large Tuna, have you seen my cell phone device?
you know the small seats in the back corner of school buses?
well anyways we fit 12 people in one of those
its a way uncomfortable ride
fuck that, yeah right josh.
anyway, the first year i rode the school bus after massive budget cuts, we were sitting 3 to a seat plus kids standing. the administration hushed it up for about 2 weeks before we bitched and moaned too much.

I'm not sure about California, but in Pennsylvania there is no maximum. If you have a Junior License, there's a max at the number of seatbelts in the car (5 seatbelts, 5 people). The Senior License doesn't have a max, you can pack as many people as you want in.
the european lisences are way different then the american ones. From personal experience you should be just fine with a normal class B lisence. Have a nice trip!
Uh most people are wrong in this situation. The maximum number of people you can drive is 14, 15 including yourself with a normal operators license. I don't know if you have them in europe but in the states we have minibuses. They fit 15 people and are popular for schools because anyone can drive them, not people with certain licenses.

I had 24 supermodels in my car once.
Have fun in Cali dude. What mountains are you going to?
hey we were in 5th grade lol
stacked to the ceiling of the bus lol
Buah, thank you! I had been searching it in Google (writting traffic law usa, rules, maximum pax, ... or something like this) and I hadn't found it. Thanks crew!
I'm planing to visit Cali on April. I will fly to San Francisco (I'm from Barcelona), and then I will go to Tahoe. I will spend 4 days in Tahoe and then I will go to Mammouth (4 days, aswell). Maybe I will post a message in the future called "Skipass prices on April" haha I think I will come back to Spain ruined
Sounds like a fun trip. You may want to spend a day in San Francisco if that is where you are flying into. It's a cool city. Just stay there a day after you fly in and then the next day go to Tahoe.
same thing happened where we were packed into a school bus, and then we got rear end at a stop light, things changed alot after that
^I mean rear ended
