New School Bus License Requirements

August 17, 2005

Due to the federal Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act (MCSIA), beginning September 30, 2006, all school bus operators must have a school bus “S” endorsement on their Commercial Driver’s Licenses, in addition to a DTE school bus certificate. A driver's ability to operate a school bus will be affected by this new requirement. Any driver who does not meet this new requirement will not be allowed to drive a school bus after September 30, 2006.

For additional information on this new requirement, please read the existing School Bus "S" Endorsement brochure and the new School Bus "S" Endorsement Brochure.

For the information you will need to study for the "S" Endorsement Knowledge Exam, please read the Knowledge Exam Study Materials.
