A Yorkshire teen has become the Britain’s youngest bus driver after passing his test – just 12 days after his 18th birthday.

Alex, from Selby, passed his test just 12 days after his 18th birthday earlier this month after training at South Yorkshire-based City Driver Training. The training centre took to Facebook to share the news, congratulating the teen on being the youngest qualified bus driver in the UK.

City Driver Training shared the post on Facebook, they said: “Huge congratulations to Alex on passing his bus test yesterday. Not only did he smash it first time but he is also just 18 years old.

“In fact Alex passed his test just 12 days after he turned 18 which is a massive achievement and also we believe makes him the youngest qualified bus driver in the UK.

“Well done again Alex, good luck with your career journey and everything you have planned!” They shared the news alongside a snap of the teen.

Unlike securing a licence to drive a car, bus drivers are unable to qualify until they are at least 18 years of age.
