We are always looking for quality drivers who want to be a member of our transportation team. Here's how!
How to Get Your CDL License
Go to the Revenue Office to pick-up the Class B CDL Packet to receive certification for Class B CDL, with the Air Brake certification, the passenger endorsement, and the School Bus Endorsement. You must bring a certified birth certificate or a passport. Cost of packet is $50 (You will be reimbursed for this packet upon hiring).
Study sections 1-5 & 10-13 in the CDL Manual, and the 'S' Endorsement study handout given to you with the book.
Go to the Arkansas State Police testing site at 1120 W. Monroe in Lowell to take your written test.
After the written test is taken and passed, return to the revenue office for your permit and then contact the Springdale Schools Transportation office to schedule time for training and testing on the following:

Most driving tests can be taken onsite by our 3rd party examiner.
