||A State rule gives school bus drivers more flexibility in the process of keeping their permits active. The amendment lets bus drivers take the annual refresher course requirement up to 60 days before their annual refresher expiration date without changing that date. All regular and substitute bus drivers are required to attend one of these sessions to keep their driving permit valid. An annual refresher course must be successfully completed prior to applying for a new permit. If a driver has a conflict with the date scheduled for his/her employing district, they are welcome to attend another class elsewhere. There will be a $10 training fee per driver for all refresher and initial courses taken by bus drivers for your district/company. We will send you an invoice and certification after your drivers have completed their training courses.
