Act 256 of 2007 amended Ark. Code Ann. 2723110(a)(11) by changing the fee structure and eliminating the S restriction as it applies to school bus drivers.

Anyone renewing a license or issued a new license after August 1, 2007, to drive a school bus, must pay the $20.00 application fee and take the tests for the P endorsement and S endorsement and pay a $41.00 license fee to obtain a class B CDL. This will allow the driver to operate any vehicle that falls under the class B. category. This act aligns Arkansas law with the S endorsement which was put into effect in 2005 by the Federal Government.
