I am a Freelance profesional coach driver with over 28 years expeience in an ever changing industry


I have driven all over the UK and Europe covering Thousands of miles and visiting Hunreds of interesting places and meeting many great people in the process


Since passing my test in 1987, my driving experience is wide ranged and hugely varied having driven all sortes of buses and coaches from 12 seat minibuses to 80 seat double deckers, from 50 year old preservation buses to brand new coaches collected direct from a dealer


I have operated most of what there is to operate from Home to School transport, day trips and nights out right through to weekend tours to extended tours throughout the UK and Europe


Over the years I have built up a reputation, among operators and clients alike, many of which request me back again time after time, of being at the top of my game through curtosy, profesionalism and always going that extra mile to ensure the clients have an amazing experience on board my coach whilst all the time ensuring paramount safety of the vehicle and client at all times

This is the Bus that I took my Class 1 test on,

Bristol Lodekka haf cab, with a manual, double-de-cluch crash gear box

After a week on it you knew you'd driven it, very heavy and hard to drive but great all the same
