29/03/2018 - Oscar pulls into first place with National Express
Lucketts man is driver of the year
A coach driver from Lucketts Travel in Fareham has proved he’s cream of the crop by picking up yet another award from National Express.
Oscar Cotton was named as the firm’s driver of the month in July last year, beating off stiff competition from more than 2,000 others across the UK. And last week he showed he was the best of the bunch after winning a competition between all 2017 monthly winners.
The 28-year-old was invited to a track day at Rockingham Motor Speedway to celebrate his success, along with the 11 other drivers of the month. The drivers were tested on everything from their driving skills to customer service and Oscar came out on top.
Oscar, who learnt how to drive coaches through Lucketts’ in-house training academy, said: “Winning driver of the month was amazing enough so to win this is the icing on the cake. I really enjoy what I do so it’s an extra bonus to win awards for it.”
Lucketts runs more than 100 journeys every day on behalf of National Express and has received the firm’s Golden Spanner award three times for the way it maintains its vehicles.
Oscar is one of several drivers from Lucketts who takes the steering wheel for the national coach firm. Just last month another of Lucketts’ drivers, Stephen Small, also picked up the coveted driver of the month title.
