Ultimate driving experience - drive a Victorian steam train or electric tram

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 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.

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 splendid 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."
