Bus drivers play a vital role in the safe transportation of passengers.  As a bus driver, safety is the most important thing to consider. 

They must also obviously be a careful and skilled driver who is able to navigate heavy traffic and make sure the passengers arrive safely. So, responsibility is one of the key words we at DriveTech would use to describe a bus driver.  

At DriveTech we fully understand that there is much more to be a bus driver than just driving. Alongside driving and transporting the public, drivers need to be able to provide excellent customer service and deal with a range of questions and issues with ease. A bus driver must be patient and have a calm level-headed approach in order to deal directly with members of the public and cope with a position that can in some ways be monotonous.

Great bus drivers do not just drive, they care about their passengers and give to them the best experience possible on their journeys.

With many years working in this sector DriveTech is uniquely placed within the driver training industry to provide targeted learning solutions.
