Blackpool Transport’s Bus Driver of the Year 2019

4 months ago Wed 10th Jul 2019

Our annual Bus Driver of the Year competition is taking place this Sunday 14 July on the Blackpool Tower Headland.

In what is always a fiercely contested event, our drivers are pitted against each other in a test of skill and the driver with the lowest number of points over the two rounds and best highway code score is deemed the winner.

Overcoming reversing exercises, bus stop manoeuvres, a length test, a platform test, fuel pump alignment exercises and a chicane, the obstacles are designed to test their skill to the fullest.

Come along and show support to your drivers, the winners of our competition will represent Blackpool Transport at the National Final of the UK Bus Driver of the Year Competition,  held in Blackpool on the weekend of the 31 August - 01 September.

Think you could take on the best? Join our driving team, learn a new skill and earn an excellent salary along the way. The role of a PCV driver is a very skilled yet rewarding job. Bus Driver of the Year gives drivers an opportunity to prove and be recognised for these skills. The champion in Blackpool can win prizes worth up to £3500! View our current driving vacancies now!
