I have a friend with a 5th wheel trailer and a one ton truck. He's out of his league and I refuse to ride with him.If only they made RV drivers larger than a 1 ton van take a specialized exam. The number of retirees with RVs who cannot properly drive them in adverse conditions is surprising.
But, he has his license and is "legal"
Just like there are a lot of hams that have their license and are "legal".
The ham license doesn't mean much on its own. Its like you've got the words, but not the music. I think the current ham tests are reasonable. The key is getting the new hams to continue their learning.
