Becoming a School Bus Driver sounds like hard work
This is something we hear too often from people when in fact becoming a school bus driver is not very difficult at all!
CDL (stands for “Commercial Driver’s License”) is a driver’s license required in the United States to operate any type of vehicle. weighing 26,001 pounds, or 10,001 pounds with any type of trailer towed.
For candidates that have their CDL
They must have the following endorsements to be a school bus driver:
Candidates that do not have a CDL must obtain a CDL Temporary Instruction Permit (TIP) from Secretary of State. To get your TIP, you must pass a vision and skills test. A TIP is needed to train on the road (under the supervision of a driver with their CDL) to obtain your actual CDL.
Any branch of Secretary of State has the necessary information to pass the TIP test or to receive the endorsements on your CDL.
