Overview

Here is your chance to get behind the wheel of a true monster! This DAF Tractor Unit hides 480bhp under its enormous bonnet, which is more than enough to drag the 55ft race car trailer behind it. Your fully qualified HGV instructor will, after a short safety briefing, take you over to the cab and go through all of the controls, offering tips on how best to control the truck. You’ll need to get used to the oversized wheel and incredible 16 gears as you bring the beast to life and negotiate around this purpose made circuit for 10-15 minutes. You’ll be able to bring up to three spectators along with you to take photos, which along with your personalised truck driving certificate, will create memories that won’t be easily forgotten!

  • Driver registration and welcome by HGV qualified instructor
  • In-cab briefing

Epic birthday present
13 October 2018
I’d always wanted to drive a big lorry and my husband surprised me with this gift. The instructor was great and the whole truck driving experience really positive. It’s only 20 minutes but for me that was just right.

Best day out
24 April 2016
Superb day out. Arrived and directed where to park by friendly and welcoming staff. Wondered over to the the registration hut, signed again by very friendly people. Git to watch the super cars go around. Taken over to the truck at speed very good fun. Lorry drive was superb, lots to do starting off with the slalom then scared the super cars by arriving near there track. The instructor was very professional and confidant inspiring. Followed by s high speed trip back to the pits. Love it all best prezzy from my wife.

Awesome Experience
10 December 2014
Have always wanted to try driving an HGV and finally got the chance as a present. Instructor was very helpful and knew exactly what she was doing and what I was likely to get wrong (so could correct me before I did it!) Passengers were allowed to ride in the cab too which was great fun (!!!) for the whole family

Good but way over priced
27 September 2014
I have done many different experiences over many years.This experience was good and interesting however it was not very demanding and was VERY short. The instructor was a nice knowlagable person, the organisation and facilaties at the event were also very good. However the lorry being fully automatic was straight forward to drive and the manouvers you had to do were very limited. It was a good experience and interesting having never driven anything like it before,but it was very expensive for what it was.

Very Short
27 July 2014
Really disappointed, The actual driving time lasted less then 15 minutes, should be at least 30 mins. The course was very short and never got into the higher gears, we were told 16 gears on this site but the lorry only had 12 not that there was time to get much over 7th gear............a very disappointing day out and very expansive for what it was.
