School Bus Driver Instructional Program. Instructor's Guide.
Department of Transportation, Washington, DC. National Highway Safety Bureau.
A standardized and comprehensive school bus driver instructional program has been developed under contract with the Federal Government. The course has been organized to provide in one package a program for developing the minimum skills and knowledge needed by the school bus driver instructor, as well as those supplemental skills and knowledge which the proficient driver might require. This manual consists of core materials presented in five units containing both classroom and in-bus instruction. These units cover an introduction to the school bus driver role and responsibility, and topics dealing with passenger control, accidents and emergencies, bus maintenance and inspection, and driving fundamentals. The emphasis in all of the course materials is on those aspects of driving a school bus which are different from those for driving an automobile or critical for the safe operation of the pupil transportation system.
