: You say, "...make it known that the use of the conveyance at the time you got pulled over is not under the terms of the license...".

: Ok, I have a master's degree and I don't have a clue what you're talking about. Could you please explain.

Here are a few things from the STATE OF CALIFORNIA...

The legislature has provide the following definitions..

"Driver's License" includes both an operator and a chauffeur's license.

"Chauffeur" is a person who is employed by another for the principal purpose of driving a motor vehicle on the highways and recieves compensation therefor.

"Operator" includes any person engaging in the transportation of persons or property for hire or compensation by or upon a motor vehicle upon any public highway in this State either directly or indirectly.

California Vehicle Code 260 (a) A "commercial vehicle" is a vehicle of a type required to be registered under this code used or maintained for the transportation of personss for hire, compensation, or profit or designed, used, or maintained primarily for the transportation of property.

"It is not the type of vehicle, but the peculiar nature of the business conducted upn and over the public highways, that justifies the classification of the statue for licensing purpose." In re Schmolke, 199 Cal 44. (S. Ct. of Calif.)

"Such extraordinary use constitutes a natural distinction and a full justification for their separate classification and for relieving from the burden of the license tax those who merely employ the public highways for the transportation of their own property or employees." Bacon Service Corp. v. Huss 199 Cal 21 (S. Ct. of Calif.)
