I reckon my driving has improved 10-fold since I started my PCV bus training (so I can drive the very first bus on the new BRT route). I find myself more relaxed, calmer and considerate when I’m in my own car.
Last week I passed the theory part, something I didn’t need to do when I passed my car test way back in 1991.
The amount we have to learn about safety, comfort and security is mind-boggling. I’m training with Rob, who will be on the Fareham, Portchester and Portsmouth runs.
The driving’s tough too. As well as negotiating narrow streets, a plastic cup was filled with water and placed on the dash. The aim was to not spill a drop. We didn’t!
