What Can I Expect

All aboard to drive a double decker bus! Taking place at Prestwold near Loughborough, these experiences give you the chance to go driving in a big Leyland double decker. What's more, you can add-on a bit of vintage coach driving too if you'd like!

Bright, red double decker buses are synonymous with London. Literally hundreds of Leyland Titans and Nationals were built for London Transport in the 1970s and 80s. If ever you were standing on Oxford Street at the time, a constant flow of these two-level buses would have trundled past you.

And of course, for anyone who's ever hopped onboard a double decker as a school kid, will remember how half us would dash upstairs to the top deck and the other half would fight over who would sit on the back seat. Now these experiences put you firmly in the driving seat.

Taking place at this well-established track day centre in Leicestershire, these double decker driving experiences are really popular. You're not the passenger paying your fare - you're driving. Climb aboard. Get comfy in the driver's cab and get ready to roll.

Don't forget your bus, with its upper and lower decks, measures in at 4.4m high, 10m long and 2.5m wide - far bigger than any car. That means you have to be more spatially-aware (ever been on the top deck when brushing past overhanging trees?!) and go carefully when negotiating this specially laid-out auto-test.

Guide your double decker around the slalom and attempt to get the bus into reverse to back into a parking space. It's not as easy as the professional bus drivers make it look, but you'll have an absolute ball trying.

If you want to drive a double decker bus and a single decker, think about going for the combo experience, which gives you the coach driving add-on for extra public service vehicle fun!
