Default Florida driving the school bus

In the sixth season where Florida find a job as a school bus driver, was wondering doesn't she need a commercial driver license (CDL) for that job? And special license at that since she will be carry passengers/student.

She just applied for the job, did a physical and then was working as a bus driver.

Yeah, and it is hard driving a big bus if you don't even have much driving experience in a car. The Evan's didn't own a car, so even if Florida had a drivers license and knew how to drive she probably hadn't driven in years ! To just up and be able to drive a big school bus with no bus driving /training lessons !?

And to make matter worse, she was driving a manual transmission (she mentioned it in one episode) bus which definitely does require prior experience with such a vehicle.

Exactly, you would have thought they would have given her another job that made was more realistic.

I thought his niece was up for the job. Then she got humorously shut down by Gary Coleman's character.
