Default shifting without clutch

i have seen drivers of commercial vehicles(buses) changing gears without depressing the clutch. it causes no sound or any jerk...
is it possible to do that or is it a fault
clarify me

Some commercial vehicles are semi automatic. I know that some buses in the UK have manual type gearboxes but no clutch.
