Driver of the Year Competition 2018Our finalists are ready to be put through their paces this Thursday.

This Thursday we are hosting the final of our annual Driver of the Year Competition.

Set up to recognise our drivers and their fantastic driving skills, the final will take place at the Royal Highland Centre.

Hundreds of our drivers entered the competition this year and over the last few months, they have been put through a series of written and road tests.

Sixteen finalists from across the Lothian family, which includes Edinburgh Bus Tours and East Coast Buses, have been chosen to attend this year’s final.

These drivers 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.
