THE SELECTION AND TRAINING OF SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS

This report describes procedures used in developing a set of selection requirements and training objectives for operators of school buses. The selection requirement included collection and interpretation of personal history and other background information; physical examination covering vision, hearing, handicaps, and general health; written knowledge tests covering general driving and school bus operations; an on-road performance test; and an attitude measure. Training objectives covered all aspects of school bus operation and were specified at three different levels in order that training might be adapted to the resources of individual school districts. The selection requirements and training objectives were based upon an analysis of the qualifications required for safe and effective operation of school buses.
