Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / New York ID Card
English term or phrase: Acronyms
I am translating a NY State ID Card issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
There are two acronyms or abbreviations that are driving me nuts.
E: None
R: F1

I know that "R" refer to the type of proof of identity you submit with your application (in this case, a passport with an F1 visa), so it could stand for Restrictions. Then I suspect E stands for Endorsements, but I am not sure as how to translate it into Spanish for Spain in this context.

If you have any suggestions, they will be much appreciated.

Explanation:
NonCommercial Driver Licenses
CLASS E: Any non-commercial motor vehicles with Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) less than 26,001 pounds, including passenger cars, 15 passenger vans including the driver, trucks or recreational vehicles and two or three wheel motor vehicles 50 cc or less, such as mopeds or small scooters. (see below). Farmers and drivers of authorized emergency vehicles who are exempt from obtaining a commercial driver license must obtain a Class E license.

O sea, es una categoría, tipo, de "registro" de conducir (a la ARG)

The NYS driver license classes include:

Operator, Class D: Issued to drivers age 18 or over, or to drivers age 17 with Driver Education. Valid for passenger cars and trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,000 lbs. or less. A Class D driver can drive a vehicle that tows another vehicle (for example a trailer) that has a maximum gross weight of 10,000 lbs. or less. A Class D driver can tow a vehicle with a GVWR of more than 10,000 lbs only if the combined weight rating of the two vehicles is 26,000 lbs. or less. See the important information about changes for Class D drivers that result from a law that eliminates the Non-CDL Class C license.
Taxi and Livery, Class E: Issued to drivers age 18 or over. Valid for the same vehicles that a class D driver can drive, plus for-hire vehicles that carry 14 passengers or less.

NYS recognizes your foreign driver license if you remain a resident of the nation that issued the license. You do not need to have a NYS driver license to drive in NYS unless you become a resident of NYS.
