BZ Program – School Bus Driver Training

(Vocational Program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005.)

Our “BZ” training is 2 to 3 weeks long and that would depend on the Drive Test Bookings.

You will first have to go to the Drive Test Centre and apply for a school bus licence. The Drive Test Centre will run a police check on you (No Charge). We cannot book your road test until the police check comes back to the Drive Test Centre.

While you are waiting for the police clearance you can do the “Z” endorsement and computer work and the School Bus Driver Improvement Course.

Once the Police check is done, you would come in to the class for the MTO prep day (every other Monday unless it’s a holiday) for the written knowledge test. Then you will take your MTO medical over to the Drive Test Centre to complete your written knowledge test.

Once you have completed your written we can book your road test. Once the road test is booked, we will start your in bus training.

You will get 18 hours of in-bus one-on-one training and the road test.
