THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - South Georgia school bus drivers showed off their skills behind the wheel on a tough obstacle course.

The Thomas County School System Transportation division hosted their annual Bus Rodeo Thursday.

Drivers from Thomas and Lee counties competed.

Drivers said they train well in advance, and many of them take it pretty seriously.

Bus driver Gregory Tyler said, “We're cheering each other on. And other one's say, 'I'm going to get you' and stuff like that.  But we're competing!”

Tyler, Matthew Walker, and Latesha Vicks will move on to the state competition, which will be held in Warner Robbins this June.
