Our drivers are highly qualified professionals. They are trained to both drive buses safely and efficiently as well as to provide the highest level of customer service to our clients.
Driver Training and SafetyWe work to teach, supervise, monitor and maintain consistent standards by having regularly scheduled meetings where safety and/or customer service training is provided. Drivers are also sent to Michigan Center for Decision Driving (MCDD) where drivers spend the day to learn or review decision driving techniques both in the classroom and in actual hands-on activities using the facility's skid course. Drivers are also trained and certified in CPR. Successful candidates must then be able to pass a company paid medical physical, a pre-hire drug test, as well as a stringent behind-the-wheel training program on equipment and procedural operations before being assigned to duty.
All employees during their employment with Checker are then subject to random drug and alcohol testing, annual criminal record checks, and driving record reviews to make sure they continue to be the best qualified employee for the job.
