School Bus Driver

Driving a school bus can be both rewarding and stressful all at the same time. You're responsible for the transportation of people's kids of all ages. Naturally there are many different roles you will have to perform. While some states will have additional requirements passing a physical exam in good health, a minimum of 18 years of age and a high school diploma will often be enough to qualify as a driver. Many school districts are always looking for drivers and this is an area of expected job growth.

To begin, check your local school district website for driving positions that may be available. If no driving jobs are listed, a quick call to the district can probably get you to the school transportation department. Since school bus drivers are often in demand in higher populated areas, you can inquire about any open positions or even ask to be added to potential candidates if a position opens in the future. You can also check with other surrounding school districts if they are suitable to your commuting time.

If the thought of driving that big yellow bus concerns you, worry no longer. Once you've been hired you will receive the necessary training to take on the task. Your training will include classroom learning and behind the wheel experience. You will learn how to backup, properly turn the large vehicle and navigate the narrow neighborhood streets. In this training process you can obtain your required CDL (Commercial Driver License), if you don't already have one.

Beyond the basic training you will need to bring some personal experience to the job. A school bus driver needs to be able to maintain order on the bus and interact will both students and parents in a helpful and friendly manner. There may be times in which you find yourself or a student in an emergency situation. Remaining calm and taking the necessary steps to remedy the circumstances at hand are all part of the job. It's a great responsibility to transport other's children to school or school related functions and one that needs to be treated accordingly.

Aside from the friendships you may make as a school bus driver, there are some additional benefits that come with the job. Driving a school bus will generally be a part time job and during school season. This schedule allows for summers off if you are able to do so or perhaps driving for summer camp transportation. Otherwise seasonal summer jobs are another option to maintain employment. If you think driving a school bus is something you would enjoy click on the link below to search your local area school districts.
