Truck Driving Experience

Realise a dream with this exhilarating lorry driving experience at your choice of venue! No need for a special LGV driving licence to drive one of these fab DAF lorries with automatic transmission – just climb aboard the cab grab that Yorkie bar and get truckin’!If you’ve seen the Stig’s lorry driving cousin the Rig Stig on Top Gear you’ll know just how powerful these articulated lorries such as the DAF CF and DAF XF are.The DAF XF was built in the UK at Leyland and offers a very large 480bhp and amazing torque worthy of the International Lorry of the Year in 2007. The 12l-engined DAF CF is a very similar truck and is often seen pounding the motorways. The tractors (the proper lorry driver’s term for the cab bit!) will be towing a trailer used for transporting cars so you’ll be manoeuvring a 55ft beast of a lorry on this off-road circuit. Climb into the cab-over-engine flat nosed tractor unit and you’ll notice how comfy it is with air-suspended driver’s seat air conditioning a sleeper berth and that elevated lorry driver’s view of the road. The cab has a sort of wraparound console dashboard so everything a long-distance trucker could need is to hand. So different to your usual car just being in a truck is brilliant!With a fully licensed lorry driver at your side you’ll be negotiating a course of cones and attempting a few reversing moves with your ‘convoi exceptionnel’ – and remember there’s no rear view mirror in the cab it all has to be done using the side mirrors on the lorry. Tricky.Once you’ve mastered the art of driving a lorry why not try a tank driving activity a truly crushing experience!
