A young National Express Coventry trainee has been praised after passing his bus driving test with no faults. Luke Brown, aged 18, took to the wheel after taking inspiration from his father Stuart, who is also a bus driver at the same operator. After completing his driver training, Luke passed his PCV test the first time and without even minor faults. Commenting on the result, Luke said: “It feels great to have passed with no minors. I put a lot of time and effort into practising for the test so it’s very satisfying to know my hard work has paid off. Having a supportive team around me has helped a lot. During my training, no question was too silly and my instructor was calm and informative so I didn’t feel pressured at all, which I believe has really spurred on my development.”
