If you bus doesn't have seats, it cannot be used for the CDL inspection/driving test as the test requires a "complete bus"...without all the seats and finished interior it isn't complete (ask my how I know this <eye roll>)

Your local school system, however, has many many complete buses and likely offers a class and machine for practice driving and testing if you are willing/able to pass the medical exam (your dime) and drive the crumb snatchers to and from school for at least a little while...some systems even seem to have drivers who exclusively drive activity buses.

If you just want a standard (non-cdl) class B to drive a behemoth of a conversion (like mine) then your converted rig will be perfect provided that its title does not say "bus"!

In texas I tried to take a class b non cdl test in a bus that was currently registered as a school bus and they would not let me test, as was said before it needs to be the same class or cdl type,

just to reiterate,
the class of a vehicle is all about the weight, specifically the gvwr listed on the vin plate.
the cdl issue is about what you do with the vehicle according to how it is titled,
and both these vary state by state
my bus thread,

RV Driver's License Requirements

The short version is that you're pretty much in the clear with a regular driver's license if your rig is NOT:

> 40 feet long
> 26,000 GVWR
