Langerholc: New CDL Skills Test Addresses School Bus Driver Shortage

HARRISBURG –Senator Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35), chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, released this statement following the announcement that a modernized commercial driver’s license (CDL) skills test for a school bus endorsement will be implemented Aug. 28 at all Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) driver license centers that offer CDL skills tests and at all third party CDL driving skill testers:

“In 2021, I sponsored legislation calling for action to help address the school bus driver shortage across the Commonwealth. Today, PennDOT announced several improvements to the school bus driver exam, including an updated driver’s manual, which focuses on key skills needed to safely operate a school bus. These measures will streamline the school bus endorsement process and hopefully attract new drivers.”
