NOW HIRING SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS
with a commercial license
School endorsement required.
Safety is one of the most important qualifications of a school bus driver. Many employers place driving record, license and background over education level. Most states require school bus drivers to be over the age of 18. Those driving over state lines must be at least 21.
Most schools require their bus drivers to have at least a high school diploma or GED.
Some well-qualified drivers, however, might get hired even if they did not complete high school.
School bus drivers typically complete several months of training. They might spend some of this training in the classroom learning rules, routes and safe practices. They will spend the other part of their training showing their ability to drive the bus and follow traffic laws.
New drivers might also spend time alongside an experienced driver until they can drive on their own.
School bus drivers must have a commercial driver’s license (CDL). There are different types of CDLs, but school bus drivers must have one that says (S) on it, showing they have passed additional tests specific to school buses.
Every two years, drivers will also need to pass a physical exam to make sure they meet the health, hearing and vision requirements to transport children. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration provides a list of medical conditions, such as epilepsy, that might prevent someone from becoming a school bus driver.
