Federal law requires drivers to submit to alcohol and drug tests as a job condition. Drivers take periodic drug-screening tests while they are on duty. In addition, drivers must have good hearing and at least 20/40 vision with or without glasses.
Employers look for school bus drivers who are even-tempered and emotionally stable. Drivers must have good communication skills and be able to manage large groups of people.
Some school bus drivers begin as substitute drivers who work only when other drivers are sick. These drivers advance by getting regular routes. Bus drivers also advance by driving for field trips and other events. Extra work hours mean higher wages. A few bus drivers may become supervisors, trainers, or dispatchers.
