Per Federal regulations, a School Bus Endorsement is required for any driver who operates a school bus containing passengers. The exception is mechanics who may need to drive an empty bus in the course of servicing the vehicle. The School Bus Endorsement is required only for those who will be operating the bus with passengers aboard.
It is necessary for drivers to have a passenger endorsement prior to obtaining a school bus endorsement, or both may be applied for at the same time.
