Refresher Courses

Bus Driver Certification Courses

All new drivers are required to complete the initial classes before applying for their school bus permit. Those who do not take the class will not be able to apply for a permit.

The annual refresher class must be completed by all drivers before they renew their permits. No permit will be renewed if the driver has not completed the course requirements prior to the renewal date.

Each driver must pre-register for the class. Payment of the $10.00 course fee is only by Credit Card or Debit Card (increase to $10.00 as of 07/01/15).

When we receive the roster from the Instructor, indicating the driver has completed the class and we have proof of payment, a letter of verification will be sent to the Employer unless you are an independent driver, then it will be mailed to the home address.

CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED (under any circumstances) in the State Initial or Refresher Classes. If the driver cannot attend the class that he/she is scheduled for, the course fee is forfeited.
