Trolleybus Driving Experience
2017 places are now SOLD OUT. Places for 2018 should be on sale December 2017.
We are offering you the chance to drive a vintage trolleybus.
The Trolleybus Driving Experience is a unique chance to get behind the wheel of a vintage British trolleybus. The day will begin with introductions over tea/coffee, followed by a safety briefing and theory session. Then, after a buffet lunch, it is out onto our trolleybus circuit for an afternoon driving with one of our experienced instructors. The day ends with a summary session, tea/coffee and presentation of your Driving Certificates. All of this is priced at £250 per person, and we’ll also include one year’s membership to the Trolleybus Museum so that you can visit us again - for free! Also included in the price of your Trolleybus Driving Experience is one guest, who also gets a buffet lunch. Additional guests are welcome too. However, please be aware that as the Museum is not open to the public not all areas and facilities of the Museum will be open. Additional guests are charged at £6.00 per person including buffet lunch. All guests are able to ride on the trolleybus whilst you are driving.
The trolleybus used will be a British 2-axle double-decker. The specific vehicle used on any day will depend on availability and it is the decision of the experienced instructor in charge. Sorry, we do not accept requests for specific vehicles.
Advance booking is essential. We advise that you book early as these spaces are limited and sell out very quickly. Please note that there are four participants on each day and time driving time is shared.
