Get behind the wheel of a 55ft monster of a vehicle in this Truck Driving Experience. Youll feel what its like to be a proper truckie as you drive one of these huge machines on an exhilarating adventure youll never forget.

Take a seat aboard a massive truck and get a different perspective on the ground below. These DAF XF tractor units and trailers pack 480bhp behind their mammoth engines, so you’ll feel the difference in power as you accelerate and manoeuvre around the track. This is no ordinary driving experience as you learn from your HGV instructor how to handle the truck around a purpose-built course designed to show you what these vehicles can really do. At the end of your session, you will be presented with a certificate, the perfect memento of your driving experience with a difference.

What's Included?

  • Welcome, introduction and safety briefing
  • In-truck briefing with your instructor
  • 10-15 minute session driving a DAF XF tractor unit and trailer
  • Presentation of experience certificate
  • Experience gift pack
  • Cancellation indemnity

What happens on the day?

On arrival at the centre, you will be welcomed by staff and introduced to your HGV instructor who will lead you over to the DAF XF tractor and trailer unit. Once sitting comfortably in the cab, your instructor will conduct a short briefing including safety procedures before instructing you on how to tackle the purpose-built course.

Once you feel confident to take the wheel, its time to start the engines and set off on your trucking adventure. Youll weave your way through cones and practise reversing the 55ft-long vehicle with your instructor by your side guiding you every step of the way. At the end of your driving session, you will be presented with a certificate before departing.

The centres contracted with us hold public indemnity liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover. Some driving operators require customers to complete an Indemnity/Damage waiver form on the day of the experience. This may state that the driver will be liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most of these suppliers are able to provide Indemnity/Damage Waiver at a small additional fee (usually £20-£45) payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the Public Liability Insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver will be provided by the activity operator. We are unable to advise or comment on the content or suitability of these products. A cancellation indemnity, subject to terms, is included with every voucher
