Bus Driver Training

The Regional Office of Education is responsible for providing the initial training for all new school bus drivers prior to receiving a bus permit (8 hours), as well as the annual refresher course (2 hours). The annual refresher course must be completed within the 12-month period prior to renewing your permit. This mandate is prescribed by the Illinois State Board of Education, and is administered by the ROE. Upcoming initial/refresher trainings are shown below.

For the State of Illinois requirements for a bus driver, please see this CyberDrive Illinois page.
