A: Operating a school bus in North Carolina, like in many other places, typically requires meeting certain physical and mental health requirements. These requirements are in place to ensure the safety of the driver, the students on board, and others on the road. If you have a diagnosed mental health condition, whether or not you can operate a school bus will depend on the specifics of your condition and whether it impairs your ability to safely perform the duties of a school bus driver.
