Summary

Summary

  • As training progresses, the trainee should experience different types of road and traffic conditions such as freeway, rural, urban, and night driving.  The trainee also should become familiar with special hazards, such as steep grades, bad curves, or other characteristics of the locality that might affect the operation of the school bus.  This experience should include practice driving on school grounds, at school loading zones, and leaving different school sites.

  • In addition, the trainee should have experience driving different types of buses, including van conversions and larger buses with different transmissions, brakes, and engines.
