School bus driver record checks available online

Posted on August 30, 2010

AUSTIN, Texas — School districts statewide can now access the driving records of their school bus drivers online free of charge.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) began offering the online driver record checks in early August at www.Texas.gov. Since then more than 6,000 records have been requested.

“We are pleased that we can offer a convenient, secure and fast way for school districts to review the driving records of their school bus drivers,” said Rebecca Davio, DPS assistant director for driver licenses. “Being able to get instant feedback will help school districts ensure the safety of the hundreds of thousands of children who ride Texas school buses every day.”

Before this new service became available, school districts had to order their employees’ driving records by mail and the process could take weeks before they knew whether a particular driver had tickets that would be a cause for concern.
