Public Safety School Bus Driver Program best practices. In addition to

student skill documentation requirements.
Texas DPS Certification/Licensing RequirementThe participant must present a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Class B CDL (P & S endorsement), a valid Bus Driver Certification card, and evidence of completion of both the Texas DPS Bus Driver Safety course and TEEX School Bus Driver Instructor (PPT001) course. These prerequisites may be accomplished by uploading a copy of the documents after registration using the TEEX Student Portal within 14 days of the start of class. Once received and approved, the participant will be notified by email they have met all prerequisites and have been added to the class roster.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
