First Student - Dennis-Yarmouth and First Student - Nauset are always looking for new or already-licensed school bus drivers. Give us a phone call or a personal visit if you want to apply. Please read in the block below the Massachusetts requirements for becoming a school bus driver. In general, to become a licensed driver takes anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks or more depending on your availability. Training includes both classroom and on-the-road training. Training time may or may not be paid time. A state inspector will give you a final road test for which our trainer will thoroughly prepare you. Once passed, you receive a Commercial Driver's Class B License with Passenger and School Bus endorsements. While we do not charge for this training, we expect you to stay with us for at least three months.

We hire route drivers (same route, same school, same times, Monday - Friday) and spare/charter drivers (fills in for sick drivers and takes sports team to games and students on field trips).
