From 28 May 1989 Cathy Halloran reports on the Dublin Bus search for the champion driver of the year.

The winning driver William Smith from Walkinstown in Dublin received an award of £350, which he says he will probably give to his "Mrs". William, who operates out of the Donnybrook garage, talks about what it takes to be a champion driver.

This was the first year of the competition with the objective of honing the skills of bus drivers.  A series of rigorous tests challenged the skills of each competing driver.
