Drive for Pace Bus

Are you looking for a great career at a reliable local company with many opportunities for advancement? Meet with Pace Bus at one of the monthly hiring events at ECC.

Eligible applicants (as determined by PACE) will receive free training at Elgin Community College to prepare for the Class B Commercial Driver’s Permit. After passing the permit exams, they can immediately start work for PACE.

The screening process will include:

  • Application Completion.
  • Computer Assessment/Questionnaire.
  • Background Check (case by case/non-violent offense).
  • Vouchers Provided for Drug Screens.

Potential students must have a valid driver’s license and a court-ordered Motor Vehicle Report (MVR or Driving Record Abstract) with a good driving record in the last five years. MVRs may be obtained from the DMV or Secretary of State for $12. For more information, visit the Illinois Office of the Secretary of State website.

Registration is not required, but to receive reminders about the event or if you have any questions, fill out the Class B Commercial Learner's Permit Interest Form.
