Prerequisites

For Texas residents, participants will need to provide:
  • A copy of their current CDL with passenger endorsement
  • A copy of their Bus Driver certification card

Texas Bus Drivers receive their Bus Driver certification card after completing  the Texas DPS Bus Driver Safety course. Therefore, the Bus Driver certification card is accepted in lieu of the ‘Evidence of completion of a Texas DPS Driver Safety Course’.

For Out-of-State participants, they will need to provide:  
  • A copy of their current CDL with passenger endorsement
  • A copy of their Bus Driver certification card
  • Evidence of completion of a DPS Bus Driver Safety course                
(This prerequisite is to ensure the participants complete the Texas DPS Safety course or a school bus driver safety course equivalency. So, if they are from out of state, they would have to present their equivalent but not necessarily the Texas school bus driver safety course.) 

After the participant has completed the DPS Bus Driver Safety course, an expiration date will be printed on their Certification Card. Participants may not attend class if their Bus Certification card has expired. 

Once all proper documentation has been collected it may be faxed to TEEX Customer Care at (979) 458-1426. If additional information is required, contact TEEX Customer Care personnel at (800) 723-3811.

All verification's and associated documentation must be completed a minimum of 14 business days prior to the start of class.
