Ohio's Preservice Driver Training Program is designed to train those who have never driven a school bus with students on board. The program, which uses current techniques and methods of operating a school bus under the Pupil Transportation Operation and Safety Rules enacted by the State Board of Education, fosters good habits that will last throughout the school bus driver's career. Upon completion of a course, the successful driver will receive a certificate of completion for the Preservice School Bus Driver Training Course that is valid for six years. The valid certificate is required for any individual to legally operate a school bus in Ohio in addition to other requirements as set forth in administrative rule, law, and local employer's requirements.
