About the London Bus Driving Experience

Looking for a unique and exciting adventure? Experience the ultimate thrill of driving an iconic red London bus with our London Bus Driving Experience. Our one-of-a-kind driving lesson provides the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a retired passenger service London bus and drive it yourself.

Driving Lessons and Instructors

Our experienced instructors will guide you through the experience, from familiarisation with the vehicle to learning new driving skills and techniques. We cater to both confident drivers and beginners, ensuring that everyone feels confident and in control. All of our driving experiences take place on a private road network, free from hazards like other vehicles and pedestrians.

Experience Details

We have different vehicles available, including ones that have been specially adapted for bus driver training. Thanks to the dual controls (like in a learners car), anybody can drive this bus, even without a driver’s licence or any car driving experience!
