The yellow school bus taking kids to school is an iconic memory tucked away in most of our minds. Our endorsement makes it easy for coaches, teachers, or anyone looking for an opportunity in driving a bus. There are so many uses and benefits for this endorsement, including that you can be 18 years old to earn a school bus drivers license. Usually these types of school bus vehicles do not cross state lines, so you don’t have until you are 21 years old to start updating your professional driving resume. Knowing the information provided in this endorsement will help you understand and become aware of how to handle situations where other people are involved.
Having a school bus drivers license can be particularly hard with children or students if a dangerous situation occurs, so we designed this section to help you understand exactly the protocol in risky school bus situations.
