FOR SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS

Effective March 1, 2019, anyone who wants to obtain a Class 1 or a Class 2 driver’s license must take a Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) Program. The MELT Program is comprised of mandatory, standardized Class 1, Class 2 and Class 2-S curriculums with in-class, in-yard (where the vehicle is not moving) and in-vehicle (where the vehicle is moving) training. (The 2-S curriculum combines both Class 2 and the School Bus Endorsement “S” requirements needed for school bus drivers.)
