Bus Driver Training

School Bus Driver Safety Certification Training is a state-mandated program to provide an initial 20 hours of safety certification training required of all school bus drivers. Also, an eight-hour re-certification training for all drivers every three years, thereafter. The purpose of this training is to assist schools in providing safety for students while being transported to and from school and on school-sponsored trips.

Instructors are located throughout our 17-county region with classes scheduled periodically throughout the year.

In the spring each year, school transportation administrators receive a listing of drivers trained in their district who need to be re-certified.Taking a re-certification class within 180 days prior to expiration date is recommended. A driver cannot legally drive a Texas school bus if their expiration date has passed.
