Here at Pacific Coachways all federal regulations are met by our staff, with regards to pre-employment, random, post-accident, and on-suspicion drug and alcohol screening. Each driver we employ is trained to become a school bus driver by a certified trainer from the California Department of Education who teaches them and prepares them for testing. The curriculum we use was developed by the CADOE and testing is administered by the CHP.
This curriculum requires applicants to undergo 20 hours of classroom training and 20 hours of practical, behind-the-wheel training. After training is complete, applicants take a written and practical test administered by the CHP. 10 hours of recurrent training is required each year to maintain our drivers’ school bus certificate, and all drivers must retest every five years to renew their certificate.
