well since you don't trust my opinion & I actually know where to go for a job.... & can make a few phone calls to get back on as a driver .. I guess you don't need my help. Don't confuse clown with incompetent. I've allready been where you want to be.

Just wondering how often job openings for this come about, im considering next fall after we are done touring for the year to go work for a company that leases out entertainer coaches.  I know a CDL will be required so i will have to get one before that, but besides that....is it a hard field to get into?

The only thing that i can see being my downfall is i am 21 right now, 22 by then.  However chances are i know more about busses than most current drivers. At least from my observation every time i try to initiate a conversation at a truck stop or rest area with a bus driver, they know nothing....not even what kind of bus theyre driving!! (Obviously i know, but nothing is a better conversation starter than 'Is that a MC (insert model here)' unless of course the answer is 'i dont know, i just am paid to drive these things!'

So anyways, i know some of you on here used to be or still are in the industry.....i am just looking to fulfill my love of driving busses when im not on tour haha.  21 years old and single and not married....might as well take advantage of it!  I am however specifically interested in entertainer coaches.

Thanks guys!

Worst case scenario, with the bus market the way it is right now, ill just buy a personal bus for myself and just work on that! haha, i do love driving them though :-)))))

Drive a school bus for a year and you will be more desirable to them for you will have 40' experience with a CDL and passenger endorsement and the school district will pay for it. They have high turn over so it should be easy to land a job there. Pay not so great but if you can tolerate the kids the drunks will be no problem. Only trouble is you will get attached to the kids making quiting difficult. Good luck no matter what you do.

When starting out driving truck, I found out the hard way that insurance companies don't want you if you're under 25, and most companies wants drivers with at least 2 years of provable driving experience.  How can you get driving experience if nobody will hire you?  That's the 6 million dollar question.  Good luck if you find out.  I personally, started with a local moving company to get up to the 2 years of experience before I bought my first truck.  Good Luck, TomC
that's what places like schneider, pam,  &j.b. hunt are for. they hire just about anybody. They all have third party testing sites & their own schools to boot.
