  • All fees are $10.00. Registration (click links below) and fees are due 4 days prior to class. Driver data will not be entered into the state system until course is completed and payment has been received by ROE #53.

  • Drivers are responsible for providing their district or company a copy of their certification card.

Refresher Course Guidance for Renewal - 35 Ill. Reg. 7412 (April 2011)

  • Your first refresher training after April 21, 2011 established what is known as your Annual Refresher Date. 
    • The very first Refresher course you take must be within 364 days of your Initial training date.
    • The date of your first refresher establishes your Annual Refresher Date
  • This date does not change anymore if you complete your refresher no more than 60 days prior to your Annual Refresher Date.
  • BUT... if you complete your refresher more than 60 days prior to the annual date, that date will become your new Annual Refresher Date.
  • BE CAREFUL... If you don't complete the refresher before your anniversary date, your bus permit expires and you cannot legally transport students. If you then go more than 30 days past your Annual Refresher Date without completing a refresher, you must retake the 8-hour Initial course and start from scratch with the process.

Driver verification will be input into the state system upon both successful course completion and cash, check or money order payment to ROE #53, 414 Court St., Suite 100, Pekin, IL 61554.
