Looking for a new challenge in which you work independently, are on the road a lot (for a short or longer period of time), and can transport people safely and comfortably? If you also aspire to hospitality, representativeness and customer-friendliness by driving a coach, then you are one of our new business cards for our coach company or industry.
A coach driver can work well independently, likes to deal with people and has a high sense of responsibility for people and coach. In addition, working in varied shifts, evenings and weekends are no problem for him/her. A coach driver can, but does not always have to be away from home for a long time. It is a profession with many different possibilities in terms of type of work, both full-time and part-time.
Jacobs Academy offers:
- Instructors with extensive practical experience
- Practical courses and situations
- Collaboration with industry partners
- Transition to own coach company with extensive work package
- Very suitable for people over 45, lateral entrants and returners
- Job guarantee

In possession of Driving license D (bus)?
Do you have a D bus driving license, but no experience driving a coach? We also offer internal training for this category of future drivers. Contact us to take a test drive with one of our instructors, and a position as a coach driver might be the perfect fit for you! You will then receive the necessary additional education and training from us (free of charge). Very suitable for early retirees, part-time job, weekend drivers or as a new full-time challenge!
Do you want to get driver’s license D (bus)?
Is a coach driver your dream job? Have you just finished school or are you looking for a new challenge? If you want to work for at least 30 hours a week, you will be financed through our partners. Do you want to pay for it yourself? Then you have complete freedom in the number of hours you want to work. We guide everyone from our Jacobs Academy during the training. You can “join” with fellow coach drivers and as soon as you have completed the training you are guaranteed a job as a coach driver at our own coach company!
