The course also includes a guided tour of the Tramway's HQ at Riverside Depot, giving the chance to see behind the scenes of our unique operation. At the conclusion of your course, you receive a commemorative certificate and souvenir to remind you of a great day out.

Morning sessions start at 1010 departing Seaton and arriving back at 1244

Although there is no age limit for this experience, students must be able to stand for long amounts of time and have a reasonable amount of strength to be able to be at the control of a tram. The instructor is on hand to help at all times and can take over more difficult tasks.

Please note that if you wish to move forward with applying to drive a tram at Seaton Tramway, a car/road vehicle license will be required.
Students will not be permitted to operate the tram when crossing the road of A3052 in Colyford.
It may be necessary to use an open tramcar, so appropriate warm and waterproof clothing should be brought along as a precaution.
