Ultimate Driving Experience

Ultimate Driving Experiences UDEs

The Ultimate Driving Experience on the Isle of Man is driving a Victorian steam train or electric tram.

The continued success of the Ultimate Driving Experiences is down to enabling members of the public the chance to experience driving one of our historic electric trams or steam locomotives.

Each UDE event is run over one day and includes safety briefings, history and theory tuition and the chance to drive one of our trams between Laxey and Ramsey, or a steam train from Castletown to Port Erin.

As there are limited dates available, bookings for both Ultimate Driving Experiences are made on a first come first served basis via Marieanne Bridges call +44 1624 697419.

Below are some customer testimonials, after experiencing the Ultimate Driving Experience.

  • 'Thank you for such an unforgettable day, if we lived in Laxey we would undoubtedly sign up for additional courses (but it's a long way from Seattle).'
  • 'The UDE was everything that I could have possibly hoped for, the format of the day was perfect, and I cannot think of any way that it could be improved.'
  • 'I've just got back from a spelndid day playing with No 7 on the MER.'
  • 'Just returned home to Sweeden from a short holiday, of which the highlight was undoubtedly the UDE on the MER.'
