Bus Driver Training

 Due to the COVID-19 virus and based on recommendations by health and safety experts, all Secretary of State Driver Services Facilities are closed to the public. Essential Secretary of State staff are working.  All driver’s licenses, instruction permits, permits and identification cards that were set to expire on or after March 17, 2020 are being extended for a period of 30 days.  This includes School Bus Permits.   We recognize that it may be difficult to complete the annual refresher training during this period, so a grace period of 30 days will be allowed for completion of this training.

To sign up for bus training, please contact Paula Earls with driver's information including driver's name and license number. 


The class fee for both initial and refresher classes  is $10.00 per driver.

Please be prompt, anyone more than 15 minutes late will not be admitted to the class.
