All school bus drivers are governed by the regulations of the U.S. and Pennsylvania Departments of transportation. To become a school bus driver, one must hold a CDL license with a passenger endorsement and pass a physical examination. Then the driver must take a 20-hour course which includes a minimum of 14 hours in the classroom and 6 hours behind the wheel of a bus. Once a state examiner passes the driver, he/she receives a school bus endorsement to their CDL license. Thereafter, the driver must annually pass a U.S. Department of Transportation physical exam and every four years be re-certified by taking a 10-hour course with a minimum of 3 hours on the road.
