shortest bus driver standing in bus with 2021 book packshot

If you need to catch the bus in Chichester, UK, you might just meet Frank, the world’s shortest bus driver

Frank moved to the UK over 20 years ago and has been a bus driver for three years after passing his test in 2018. 

Even though Frank is only 136.2 cm, nothing special needs changing on the bus to help him drive it – he just pushes his seat forward and he’s ready to go! 

During lockdown Frank carried on driving his bus as a key worker. He says he's proud to "continue serving his community and help people to reach their destinations". What a hero! 

He would love to continue breaking records by becoming the shortest train driver, lorry driver and even a pilot one day! 


Achieving the Guinness World Records title for shortest bus driver and having his name printed in history means Frank’s children and grandchildren will always remember his achievement.

If you’d like to know more about Frank, he’ll be in a new TV show on Channel 5 called Little Briton.

He thinks his main skills are motivating and inspiring people even if they are a little different, and he hopes this TV show will help many people believe in themselves.  

He had a great time during the filming and loved meeting all the film crew. 

When Frank found out that his record was in the new Guinness World Records book, Frank said he would "cherish and keep it forever". 

Frank is just one of the incredible record holders featured in Guinness World Records 2021, which is available to order now.
