His owner, Richard McCormack, 62, said: "He sits next to me when I'm driving and in the driver's seat when I'm not.
"The handbrake is on the dashboard and he's seen me release it many times.
He was just copying me. "He's tried it on before."
Mr McCormack parked his massive mobile home in Winnellie Rd, which runs down a slight hill, and popped into a yard to inquire about repair work.
He was gone only a couple of minutes, but that was enough for Woodley to go for a spin.
"I came out and saw the bus going down the road. I couldn't believe it," he said.
Woodley's getaway was -- this time -- unsuccessful. After the motorhome moved about two hundred yards, McCormack was able to jump inside and stop it.
