Driver education - Bus driver training

Bus driverBus drivers have a significant role to play in protecting the safety of their passengers. Behind-the-wheel training, driver instruction and continued education are essential to keeping students safe. Many educational resources are available online to assist schools. Local in-service classes are another way to provide continued education and professional development for drivers.

Start with the basics by establishing a universal crossing signal that notifies children when it’s safe to cross the street. That signal should be known and used by all bus drivers at your school, and be shared with all students.
