You will probably need to obtain a CDL license with endorsements to allow you to transport school children. Also, expect that a background check will be done, so you need a clean record for driving and citizenship. Check with the school district. Most are delighted to provide training with pay for p…eople who are qualified. (MORE)

Many employers prefer high school graduates and require a written test of ability to follow complex bus schedules. Many intercity and public transit bus companies prefer applicants who are at least 24 years of age; some require several years of experience driving a bus or truck. In some States, scho…ol bus drivers must pass a background investigation to uncover any criminal record or history of mental problems. Bus driver qualifications and standards are established by State and Federal regulations. All drivers must comply with Federal regulations and with any State regulations that exceed Federal requirements. Federal regulations require drivers who operate commercial motor vehicles in excess of 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight rating or designed to carry 16 or more persons, including the driver, to hold a commercial driver's license (CDL) with the appropriate endorsements from the State in which they live. To qualify for a CDL, applicants must pass a knowledge test on rules and regulations and then demonstrate in a skills test that they can operate a bus safely. A national databank records all driving violations incurred by persons who hold commercial licenses, and a State may not issue a CDL to a person who has already had a license suspended or revoked in another State. To be issued a CDL, a driver must surrender all other driver's licenses. A driver with a CDL must accompany trainees until the trainees get their own CDL. In addition to having a CDL, all bus drivers must have a "passenger" endorsement for their CDL, which requires passing a knowledge test and demonstrating the necessary skills in a vehicle of the same type as the one they would be driving in their duties. Information on how to apply for a CDL and each type of endorsement can be obtained from State motor vehicle administrations. While many States allow those who are 18 years of age and older to drive buses within State borders, the Department of Transportation establishes minimum qualifications for bus drivers engaged in interstate commerce. Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require drivers to be at least 21 years old and to pass a physical examination once every 2 years. The main physical requirements include good hearing, at least 20/40 vision with or without glasses or corrective lenses, and a 70-degree field of vision in each eye. Drivers cannot be colorblind. They must be able to hear a forced whisper in one ear at not less than 5 feet, with or without a hearing aide. Drivers must have normal blood pressure as well as normal use of their arms and legs. They may not use any controlled substances, unless prescribed by a licensed physician. Persons with epilepsy or with diabetes controlled by insulin are not permitted to be interstate bus drivers. Federal regulations also require employers to test their drivers for alcohol and drug use as a condition of employment and require periodic random tests of the drivers while they are on duty. In addition, a driver must not have been convicted of a felony involving the use of a motor vehicle, a crime involving drugs, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, refusing to submit to an alcohol test required by a State or its implied consent laws or regulations, leaving the scene of a crime, or causing a fatality through negligent operation of a commercial vehicle. All drivers must be able to read and speak English well enough to read road signs, prepare reports, and communicate with law enforcement officers and the public. In addition, drivers must take a written examination on the Motor Carrier Safety Regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation. Because bus drivers deal with passengers, they must be courteous. They need an even temperament and emotional stability because driving in heavy, fast-moving, or stop-and-go traffic and dealing with passengers can be stressful. Drivers must have strong customer service skills, including communication skills and the ability to coordinate and manage large groups of people. Most intercity bus companies and local-transit systems give driver trainees 2 to 8 weeks of classroom and behind-the-wheel instruction. In the classroom, trainees learn Department of Transportation and company work rules, safety regulations, State and municipal driving regulations, and safe driving practices. They also learn to read schedules, determine fares, keep records, and deal courteously with passengers. School bus drivers also are required to obtain a CDL from the State in which they live. They must additionally have a "school bus" endorsement for their CDL. To receive this endorsement, they must pass a written test and demonstrate necessary skills. The skills portion of the test is taken in a bus of the same type that they would be driving on their route. Both of these tests are specific to school buses and are in addition to the testing required to receive a CDL and the "passenger" endorsement. Many persons who become school bus drivers have never driven any vehicle larger than an automobile. They receive between 1 and 4 weeks of driving instruction and classroom training on State and local laws, regulations, and policies of operating school buses; safe driving practices; driver-pupil relations; first aid; special needs of disabled and emotionally troubled students; and emergency evacuation procedures. School bus drivers also must be aware of the school system's rules for discipline and conduct for bus drivers and the students they transport. During training, bus drivers practice driving on set courses. They practice turns and zigzag maneuvers, backing up, and driving in narrow lanes. Then, they drive in light traffic and, eventually, on congested highways and city streets. They also make trial runs without passengers to improve their driving skills and learn the routes. Local-transit trainees memorize and drive each of the runs operating out of their assigned garage. New drivers make regularly scheduled trips with passengers, accompanied by an experienced driver who gives helpful tips, answers questions, and evaluates the new driver's performance. Most bus drivers get brief supplemental training at regular periods to keep abreast of safety issues and regulatory changes. New intercity and local-transit drivers usually are placed on an "extra" list to drive chartered runs, extra buses on regular runs, and special runs (for example, during morning and evening rush hours and to sports events). They also substitute for regular drivers who are ill or on vacation. New drivers remain on the extra list, and may work only part time, perhaps for several years, until they have enough seniority to be given a regular run. Senior drivers may bid for the runs that they prefer, such as those with more work hours, lighter traffic, weekends off, or-in the case of intercity bus drivers-higher earnings or fewer workdays per week. Opportunities for promotion are generally limited. However, experienced drivers may become supervisors or dispatchers-assigning buses to drivers, checking whether drivers are on schedule, rerouting buses to avoid blocked streets or other problems, and dispatching extra vehicles and service crews to scenes of accidents and breakdowns. In transit agencies with rail systems, drivers may become train operators or station attendants. Opportunities exist for bus drivers to become either instructors of new bus drivers or master-instructors, who train new instructors. A few drivers become managers. Promotion in publicly owned bus systems is often determined by competitive civil service examination. Some motor coach drivers purchase their own equipment and open their own business.

In most or all counties its once every 12 months, usually with a 15 to 30 day grace period after that
As of Sept 1, 2008 drivers of large schools buses are paid $ 89. per day including attendance bonus (First Student - Calgary).
Sorry to say, but in Minnesota as a school bus driver you can not claim unemployment like every other seasonal job. School bus drivers are lumped in with teachers even though most of the time they aren't given the option to spread their pay over 12 months. This means that many have zero income for a… few months a year. (MORE)
In addition to being a good driver, there are other importantskills needed to be a bus driver. At the top of the list is thatyou must be able to concentrate on the task at hand so that youdon't lose focus on your driving even if there is something goingon behind you.
Most school bus companies are under contract to the particular school board....routes are paid normally by a combination of time and mileage, and sometimes by the size of the vehicle.
School drivers drive school buses. School bus drivers transport children between their home and school safely and efficiently during the school year.
Yes a school can require you to get a TB test, so it doesn't spread.
I drive 4.5 hours per day and gross $91.76 per day for 180 school days! My paychecks are paid out twice a month and I receive 24 checks per calendar year.
It varys. Some horse only need there teeth seen once in their life time, others, may need it once a year and the "horse dentist" will just rasp the teeth so np sharp points will cause eating problems or pain in their mouth.
It is possible but if someone's only contact with the site was operating a shuttle service, they may not have encountered enough of the material to pose a significant health risk. While there is no specific threshold (ie number of fibers required to induce mesothelioma) the general trend is that mos…t people with the disease got it from years of exposure. Many military and government facilities used asbestos as fireproofing when they were constructed. Though asbestos has largely been removed or contained, it may have been possible to get mesothelioma if this person was present inside the facilities. One other option might be that they could have gotten mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos in the automotive parts of the bus. Did this person ever perform repairs on the vehicle? (MORE)

Could a school bus be converted into a scrap tire hauler i have the proper permits to haul the tires do you need a special drivers license in Texas?
It could be. If it's being used for a commercial purpose, and has a weight rating of over 26,000 lbs, then you'll need a state fuel tax sticker, DOT or state exemption number, and a Class B CDL.
You need either a Class C or Class B CDL, depending on the vehicle's weight. If it's a vehicle with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 26,000 lbs. or less, you need a Class C CDL with passenger endorsement. If it's a vehicle with a GVWR of more than 26,000 lbs., you need a Class B CDL with passenger e…ndorsement. (MORE)
Yeah, they do. Just in case kids on the bus need to cross the road. It's for there safety. Added; EXCEPT if you are on the oppposite side of 4-lane highway divided by a median.. True - but even then it is wise to keep a sharp lookout for kids - who are still prone to doing stupid stuff, like ru…nning across the divided highway without looking. You may not have to stop, but it is a good idea to take your foot off the gas and be prepared to stop suddenly - just in case. (MORE)
Yes. In NYS you need a CDL-B with Passenger and School Bus endorsements, as well as a current DOT Medical Certificate

Usually a needle is used to make a small bubble of fluid containing proteins (PPD) under the skin. 2-3 days later the test is read by looking for thickening of the skin at the injection site.
The same documents you brought in for your permit, a vehicle to drive in, registration and insurance. Check your state drivers manual or web site to be sure what your state requires.
You don't get your driver fired. If you don't like him/her find another way to get to school or sit on the bus and be quiet.
The Legal Way(s): Find out what they do, what makes them tick. Take my old bus driver for an example: Old, hates children, does not like any talking. Then I had everyone one the bus sing an annoying song, causing him to swear at us and potentially making him want to kill us. Eventually he ch…anged bus routes and picked up different children. Or call the local transportation service and complain. Or take pictures of him/her doing drugs. Or make him/her so mad that he/she snap and start beating you. (Highly recommended.) The Illegal Way(s): Follow him/her then plant drugs on the bus. Photoshop a photo of him/her doing drugs. Drug his/her drink with a drug. Drug him/her with a drug that causes him to go conciseness and then plant drugs around him/her and while doing that,inject a drug in his arm and then call the police. Lots of illegal ways. Summary: There are many illegal ways to get your bus driver fired but doing the illegal way can end up with jail time if you get caught, but if you don't get caught then the bus driver will never drive children to school again. The legal ways however can be less effective. Of course when there is physical abuse then you can be most certain that the bus driver will go to jail for assault of a minor. I am not responsible if the police found out if you looked at this page and/or if you got caught. ~thecrazymurderur (MORE)
They can cite the student for poor behavior on the bus. In many districts 3 citations means the child can't ride the bus and the parents have to find another means to get him/her to school.

It depends mostly upon the county in which they are employed, and it also depends upon how much experience they have. Overall though, bus drivers are not payed that much and most bus drivers today are retirees from another job.

Almost certainly not. The examiners do not provide a vehicle for you to take the test in; you have to bring your own, which means you either have to drive it there (assuming you have a permit allowing you to) or get someone else to drive it there for you (in which case you might as well get a ride f…rom them as well). The only reasonable circumstance I can think of in which you might ride a school bus to a driver's test is if you were using your parent's (or a friend's) car, and they needed it during the day but were meeting you at the license office after school, and your school allowed you to ride the school bus to somewhere other than your home.

You would need to take the passenger test (which includes a written test and a road test), and complete a background check. At this point, you would receive an "S" endorsement (rather than a "P" endorsement). Your CDL would have to be a class appropriate to the vehicle being driven (Class C for vehi…cles up to 26,000 lbs. GVWR, Class B for vehicles 26,001 GVWR and higher), and, if it's equipped with air brakes, you need to complete the written air brakes test and road test in an air-brake equipped vehicle (there is no endorsement for air brakes - if you don't meet that criteria, you get a restriction barring you from operating an air brake equipped commercial vehicle).

The standard test for tuberculosis--which is the so-called tuberculin skin test--detects the presence of infection, not of active TB.
At the bare minimum, every bus driver is going to want a coupletools that every driver should already have: a tread depth gauge& a tire pressure gauge. Beyond those two things the tools geta bit more specialized. You'll probably want some screwdrivers andwrenches to check the tightness of your vehic…le's specific nuts,bolts & screws (do you need to change a bulb? Those mirrorsseem a bit loose.). You may also want a torque wrench to check yourlugs. A multimeter can be helpful for checking electrical systemssuch as the battery (is your alternator working properly?).Condition specific equipment like snow chains aren't tools. (MORE)
