Private School Bus
All private motor vehicles used for the transportation of children to and from public and private schools, kindergartens, nursery schools and day care centers are considered private school buses.
The Passenger Transportation Regulatory Division (PTRD) of the Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW) enforces laws that require drivers of private school vehicles to be licensed, trained and inspected annually or semi-annually depending on seating capacity of the vehicle.
Before drivers are issued a license, they must also meet eligibility qualifications such as driving record and criminal background checks.
