Lothian Driver of the Year Competition

We're celebrating the best of the best

This week we are holding our first Driver of the Year Competition recognising the 'best of the best' of our bus drivers.

347 bus drivers entered the competition back in February and since then they have been put through written tests on their road and driving knowledge and an assessment of their driving skills in service by our training school team.

The numbers have been whittled down and we now have sixteen finalists from across our business, including Edinburgh Bus Tours and East Coast Buses who will attend competition finals at the Royal Highland Centre tomorrow, Wednesday 12 July.

These finalists will be put through various obstacles and challenges on the day including a chicane test, blind speed test, a ramp exercise and a 20 minute road drive with the final five drivers going on to represent the company at the UK Bus Driver of the Year finals in Blackpool this September.

This year finalists are:

Central Garage
Davie Millar
Adam Stitt
Paul Starr

We wish them all the best of luck.
