Terms & Conditions

1. The participant must hold a valid UK driving licence which must be produced for inspection on the day.
2. Participants aged under 25 or over 70 can only be booked with the prior agreement of our insurers, so any please contact us before booking.
3. The participant must be able-bodied and have a reasonable level of fitness – trolleybus cabs can be difficult to get in and out of and doing this several times in a day can be challenging.
4. The participant must meet the legal eyesight requirements for driving, if necessary wearing spectacles.
5. The participant must have adequate hearing, to hear the conductor’s bell and more importantly the driving instructor’s directions.
6. In compliance with legislation the participant must not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
7. The participant agrees to comply with the rules of The Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft (Sandtoft Transport Centre Limited) and the instructions given during the course.
8. A booking may be cancelled up to 14 days before the selected day and a refund given. Any refund may be subject to the deduction of a small handling charge and may depend on the space being sold to a new participant. The TDE Manager should be contacted as soon as practicable if a cancellation becomes necessary


One guest is included in the basic price. Additional guests are welcome but the Museum is not open to the public during TDE days, so not all our facilities may be available. Additional guests are charged at £7.50 each, including refreshments and lunch. All guests can ride on the trolleybus during the day whilst participants are driving.
