Why Do You Need School Bus Driver Training for Your Class B CDL?
Though it’s not legally required to take a training course before applying for your class B CDL, it is “highly recommended,” according to the Minnesota DVS.
Who could argue with that? Driving a bus is nothing like driving a car. Even though the controls may be similar, there is a whole host of new things to learn, such as how to park and turn when your vehicle isn’t as maneuverable as your standard car. Moreover, to apply for a school bus endorsement on your class B CDL, you’ll need to pass an additional written and road test that demonstrates you know everything from basic driving procedures to how to handle your passengers in an emergency. This isn’t common knowledge for many people; it’s knowledge best learned firsthand from industry professionals.
Plus, we’ll pay for your training if you accept a job with us. Learn a new skill and trade secrets, get paid while doing it, and have steady employment when it’s all said and done. Who wouldn’t want to opt in to training?
