Bus Driver Training
Each Regional Office of Education is responsible for
conducting two types of Bus Driver courses. The 8-hour initial
training is required for all new school bus drivers prior to
getting a bus permit, and the annual 2-hour refresher workshop
is required in the 12 month period prior to renewing their
school bus permit.
Experienced drivers must take a 2-hour refresher course
annually, and all new drivers must take an 8-hour course in
school bus driver safety and first aid, as prescribed by the
Illinois State Board of Education and administered by the ROE.
