Bus & Coach Driver


Bus and coach drivers transport passengers on local, national or overseas journeys. Road safety is an important part of the job, and drivers are responsible for the safety of their passengers. If you love driving and enjoy meeting different people, this could be just the job you are looking for.

To be a bus or coach driver, you should have excellent driving skills and knowledge of traffic regulations. You’ll need to be patient and have a responsible attitude. A good sense of direction also helps.

To do this job you will need a Passenger Carrying Vehicle (PCV) licence and Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (Driver CPC). To get these, you must hold a full EU driving licence.
