School Bus Endorsement Training

Course Length and Content:


If you are looking to start a job as a school bus driver, you will first need to obtain a School Bus (“S”) Endorsement. Before you can qualify for the “S” Endorsement, you’ll need to already have your CDL license and Passenger (“P”) endorsement. Our school bus training course is therefore designed to be added on to CDL and passenger training, whether you already have your license or are taking one of our other courses. The course is 30 hours long, split between 20 hours of classroom training and 10 hours of hands-on proficiency training with our experienced instructors. You’ll learn how to load and unload children, operate a school bus’s lights and warnings, manage a bus route, and supervise children. At the end of the course, you’ll receive a diploma, transcript, and Commercial Driver Training Certification and be prepared to take the CDL school bus endorsement test.

Our maximum class size is 12 students with a 3:1 student to instructor ratio
