Default Adding Passenger Endorsement - New Road Test or Not?

I know the fastest and probably most accurate way to find this out would be to call the DPS in the morning, but I'm mostly just curious. I've been thinking about adding a Passenger endorsement to my license for a little bit now to allow for some flexibility, but something in the back of my mind said I had to retake a road exam with a bus. This could, however, just be my mind making random crap up....:lol:

Anyone know if in the state of OK if you have to retest, or just take the written exam?

I guess I have to disagree with the rest of the group.

Per http://www.dmv.org/ok-oklahoma/apply...p#Endorsements
Quote:
Endorsements
To be licensed for certain types of commercial vehicles, extra testing is required. If you pass, you will receive an endorsement on your CDL. These are the five endorsements that you can apply for. Each requires between one and five knowledge (written) tests, and two require driving (skills) tests.

* T?Double/Triple Trailers (knowledge test only)

* P?Passenger (knowledge and skills tests)

* N?Tank Vehicle (knowledge test only)

* H?Hazardous Materials (knowledge test only)

* S?School Buses (knowledge and skills tests)

Notice the endorsement for 'P' -- (knowledge and skills tests)

i agree with previous post. i always hard you had to take a driving test if you want the passenger endorsement. but for a passenger permit you only need to take the written (of course)

Thanks for the replies guys. I had thought a new road test was the case, but hadn't really pulled up anything on the ok dot page. Eh, generally I prefer cargo that doesn't talk back anyway!

This is what my license looks like. All i did was the written. No driving. I thought it was just the written test but in PA it is both. If i would have knowed that i would have never even took the test. It puts a Rstr. on your license. If you just take the written.
