Coach Driver Training Changed My Life

L&T Transport Training Services sponsorship helped me to get my dream job.

All of her life, Leanne Marsh (30), of South Kirby, near Pontefract, had dreamed of becoming a coach driver and taking some coach driver training.

Her dad and grandad, before him, were both bus/coach drivers and Leanne regularly spent time with them on coach journeys.

Leanne passed her coach driving test first time and started what she calls ‘my dream job’ with Browns Coaches in South Kirby.


However, three years into her career, Leanne experienced personal setbacks involving the health of her daughter and the death of her father two years ago. This left Leanne with her own health issues that she fought to overcome.

Coach driving is in my blood

“Coaches are such a big part of our family’s life”, says Leanne, “that it was my Dad’s wish that I should drive him to his funeral in a coach. I was so proud to do that”, she said.

Having taken time out of her career, Leanne has got her life back on track. She has recently taken her first steps back to regular coach driving by volunteering to drive day trips within her local area.

Of her experience with L&T and the training process, she continues: “On my first lesson, I was so nervous that I was shaking. The instructor told me that if I could drive a car then a coach is no different, just bigger.”

“Without the help of Jo and Malcolm Lloyd, and Rob Taylor, all co-owners of L&T Transport Training, none of this would have been possible. I will be forever grateful to them all for their sponsorship, helping me to get through my PCV test and I can’t thank them enough.”

Back behind the wheel
