good luck...i have one tomorrow at 0930 at ashington bus depot...

according to my dad (who is a 15 year running bus driver for the company) they just get you in a bus and make you drive around the depot and a few streets to see how well you do and obviously make note of what they need to teach you.

my dads well jealouse that im going to get the full CPC straight away where he has to do it over a few years

edit: just read it, didnt see the bit where you said written assessment lol

Well this is highway code


T-junction with
priority over vehicle
from the right


But none of the answers was this on one and best part about it i remembered this one best

Puzzled me

The nearest was T junction they put so i put that but knew it was wrong.

And heard nothing so looking bad

Was not an option i looked at them up and down not there so had to put nearest that was just T Junction.

Another question was

Driving on ice what would you do in emergency stop

1 while braking pull handbrake on

2 hold steering wheel with both hands

3 put it in reverse

4 turn right

i put 2
but expected to change down box while feathering the brakes gently .
