This Experience is a unique opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience a drive of our twelve car transporters. In this experience you will be guided by a fully qualified HGV instructor as you attempt to maneuver the 60 foot monster around a specialist course. The Truck itself is a Scania P420 which benefits from a 13 litre 6 cylinder engine, producing 420 brake horsepower with 2200 NM of Torque. 

This experience provides 15-20 minutes behind the wheel of the lorry. In the experience, you will be given an in depth briefing in the cab by your instructor as he helps you get to grips with the oversized wheel and the 12 speed gearbox. You will then be given expert tuition as you attempt to coax the truck around various slaloms, as each course at the various venues on offer boasts lots of tight and technical sections, allowing you to massively improve your spatial awareness.

You will also be able to have a couple of attempts at reverse maneuvers in a bid to try and perfect your parking. Once you have completed your driving, you will then receive a certificate of completion, with the option to purchase photographs of your Truck Driving Experience as you reflect on a truly memorable day.

                1. Richard.M (verified owner)

                  I really enjoyed the experience and the instructor was good as well.

                2. R.Osborne

                  The course layout for the truck was challenging and thought provoking. The staff amazing.

                3. Luke Jarvis
