Becoming a Bus Driver

There are opportunities available to persons interested in bus driving. Are you considering earning some extra income? Does working Monday to Friday with weekends off, and having holidays at Christmas, spring break, and July & August appeal to you? School bus drivers are required for regular routes, spare driving and field trips. As well, driving a school bus as a casual driver could lead to permanent employment. Driving a school bus is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Earn a secondary income
  • Supplement your retirement plan

The following are some requirements of bus driving candidates:

  • Enjoy working with children
  • Have held a driver's licence for five years with a good driving record
  • Being physically fit

Persons with the necessary qualifications may begin to work towards a School Bus Driver's licence. See also the Duties of a Bus Driver.
