CA DMV Endorsement Class C for MH and 5th Wheels

The CA DMV handbook states:

With a Class C driver’s license, you may tow:
• A single vehicle with a GVWR of 10,000 lbs. or less (including a tow
• With a vehicle weighing 4000 lbs. or more unladen, a:
— Trailer coach or fifth-wheel travel trailer under 10,000 lbs. GVWR
when towing is not for compensation.
— Fifth-wheel travel trailer exceeding 10,000 lbs. but under 15,000
lbs. GVWR, when towing is not for compensation, and with

My question is: How do you get an endorsement? Has anyone here got one?

What if your 5th wheel GVWR is more than 15,000 lbs??
