Course Information
School Bus Driver Workshop: Safety & Bus Operations

You are a professional driver and with that title comes a certain set of expectations. As a bus driver, you’re looked to as the expert and expected to have the knowledge to safely operate your vehicle and transport students. During this course, we’ll review safety best practices that can help you remove or reduce risk, and discuss unsafe behaviors to avoid behind the wheel. We’ll explore all of this while reviewing the details surrounding four real-life crashes, behaviors that led to the crashes and what could have prevented them.

Then, we’ll review the basics of bus operating systems so you have the tools to identify problems and avoid breakdowns. Topics will include performing proper vehicle inspections; best practices for setting and using mirrors and reference points; how air brakes and hydraulic brakes work; and correctly testing your brake system.
