Drive for Licking Heights
Our drivers are trained professionals who are dedicated to providing safe transportation for our students. Each day, our drivers are safely transporting our future!

Driving a school bus is a worthwhile, yet demanding job. Our drivers maneuver a 30,000-pound vehicle on narrow country roads lined with cars in all kinds of weather conditions. While driving, our drivers supervise 50 to 60 students. This requires a patient and highly-skilled person. This position comes with tremendous responsibility.  

Driver applicants are thoroughly evaluated before they are hired. Drivers must complete and pass the following:
  • Medical physical
  • Background check
  • Drug screen
  • Driving record check
They also attend 15 hours of classroom instruction and approximately 20-30 hours of on-the-bus training. After successful training by an experienced on-board instructor, they must be tested by state administration in order to obtain a commercial driver’s license.  

Licking Heights drivers complete annual physicals and random drug screens, as well.  Every six years, bus drivers must recertify, which means additional classroom instruction, and a driver’s evaluation by an on-board instructor.  

Our drivers are trained and ready to roll each year! If you would like to join our team, reach out to us at 740-927-3340.
