Zenfolio | PSV BADGES AND LICENCES

PSV BADGES

Welcome to my web site devoted to
This is a web site devoted to the PSV licencing system and before.

I will be adding badges from my own collection, and those which other people have very kindly allowed my to use.

There is no financial gain in this for me, it is just a hobby after working in the Bus and Coach industry for 43 years, and having had a PSV Driving Licence since 23rd January 1972.

If you have a PSV Conductors or Drivers Badge and/or Licence which you would like to share with others then I would be pleased to add an image to my site.

If you would like me to contact you when the site is updated, please contact me through the CONTACT ME page and I will add you to my list.

I started my working career with Oldham Corporation Passenger Transport Department in May 1968, in the Works Office, then moved to the Traffic Office until 1974 when I moved to Princess Road in Manchester.
Did 4 years part time Driving for North Western RCC/National Express,from Hulme Hall Road Garage in Manchester, in there somewhere.
I left Greater Manchester PTE as it had become in April 1974, in 1975 when I was appointed Asst. Traffic Officer at Derby Borough/City Transport.
Left there in 1980 to take up the post of Operating Superintendent with Darlington Corporation Transport, which became Darlington Transport Company at de-regulation.
I was made redundant from there in September 1989, and then joined OK Motor Services, Bishop Auckland for a short period, before taking up the post of Coach Manager with Cleveland Transit Coaches in Stockton on Tees.
On the takeover of them by Stagecoach I left the industry for a short time, before returning as Tours and Excursions Manager with Compass Royston Coaches in Stockton on Tees.
Working in the Priivate sector did not suit me, and after a short spell driving for Arriva (ex United Automobile Services) at Richmond Depot, I spent the final 10 years of my working life with Durham County Council, as a Transport Monitoring Officer.
I took early retirement, under the Local Government cut backs, in 2011 after nearly 45 years in the Bus and Coach industry.
I enjoy my retirement, doing not very much, well as much as 'She who must be obeyed' let's me not do.

Drivers badge no EE61652 issued on 10th April 1984 after passing my test 2 months earlier. At the time, the Traffic Commisioners had to decide whether you were a fit person to hold a PSV drivers licence. It was very rare to get your badge immediately. I got an owner driver to write to Birkbeck house on my behalf. I then received my badge within 8 days of the letter being posted. I have a Conductors badge EE68960 which was never issued. I bought it in either 1986 or 1987 at North Weald bus rally.
