School Bus Driver Jobs

School Bus Driver Job Overview

School Bus Drivers do more than just transport students from their homes to their schools. These drivers must also keep an eye on those students to ensure that they follow the rules and stay safe. Drivers must also know how to maneuver a large bus around tight corners. Bus drivers follow a set schedule that allows them to pick up each child around the same time each morning and get them to school before the day starts. Bus drivers may also travel with the students on field trips and special events.

School Bus Driver Job Education Requirements

Those interested in School Bus Driver jobs must have a license to operate a bus. Most drivers have a CDL license, but not all schools require their drivers to get this license. Some private and charter schools use SUVs and other smaller vehicles to transport kids to school, and drivers working for those schools only need a regular license. Applicants must also have a clean driving record and pass a criminal background check before working with children. Drivers have the chance to work their way up through the ranks to other positions such as dispatchers and trainers.

Though there were more than 654,000 bus driving jobs in the United States in 2012, the number of drivers working in the field will increase by nearly 58,000 in the future.
