I've recently decided to take my bus test, i've already got an HGV class 1 licence, and while some of this is like teaching me to suck eggs due to my large vehicle experience a lot of it it like an 'idiots guide' to buses. Really just there for complete morons and to pad the book out. There are 2 pages that tell you why you shouldn't crash into bridges, surely this was only worthy of half a page, as it's fairly obvious why you shouldn't crash into a bridge. There are also about 5 pages telling you what a bus, coach and minibus are. I mean i'm sure it's really useful info if you've never seen a bus before, unless you were born and brought up in Antarctica i doubt you've managed avoid seeing one at some point in your life.
Really i don't think this is as good as the old combined driving large vehicles book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 28 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for the Case Study Test, because I couldn't find any information in any other place. This book really helped me. Passed the test on the first try with a score of 46/50.
There's also information about the practical driving test. Don't know if it helps, because I bought it after I passed the test.
Definitely recommend it.
