Information for Bus Drivers
Everyone is reminded to check your Medical Certification paperwork for the expiration date. If you are about to expire, please contact our medical provider and make an appointment at least one week prior to the expiration. You will then need to go to the local DPS office and complete a separate form and pay for the adjustment at YOUR COST.
The State of Texas Department of Public Safety and Department of Transportation will downgrade your CDL to a regular license if your medical certification has expired. You will be required to retake the CDL tests to get your license re-instated, at YOUR COST.
