Frequently Asked Questions

Driving experiences must be booked in advance. We ask that you book online or via email or if preferred call us to arrange a day and time for your experience. Please do so well in advance, we recommend a minimum of 2 weeks notice to avoid disappointment.  Anyone arriving at the centre without a booking will not be permitted entry, even with a valid voucher.

We accept bookings for Saturdays and Sundays, with occasional availability during the week. We do not have fixed opening hours as all Driving Experiences are Strictly Pre-Book Only. Please use the Book Now button on the website or email us with your preferred day and time and we will try to accommodate your request.

No matter what weather, All drivers and any spectators wishing to ride along should wear long trousers, long-sleeved jumpers or coats and suitable walking boots with ankle support. On wet days, please bring waterproofs if you have them, a change of clothes and shoes for the trip home is recommended especially in wet weather when the ground can become very muddy! On hot days, we advise suncream, but no shorts!

A Tank driver should be 16 years of age or older on the day of the experience, Truck and G-Wagon Drivers can be 12 Years of age or older. We do occasionally allow sensible younger drivers at our discretion.  However, This depends on the person’s height, as they do need to be able to reach the pedals! If you are unsure or would like a younger driver to take part, we recommend you call prior to purchasing a voucher or when booking to discuss your requirements.

Any spectators who wish to ride along must be 9 years old or above.

An additional driver is welcome without charge. However, please understand that the drive time for each driver will be much shorter as we will need to provide 121 tuition for the additional person within the same time frame. If you would like someone else to share your driving experience,  please tell us when you book your day.

The tanks can accommodate 6 passengers, one driver and one instructor.

The Gwagon supports 2 Passengers, a driver and an instructor.

The Unimog support 1 Passenger, a driver and an instructor.

No driving licence required, you’ll be off-road, on our private land, in our vehicles with our full permission, completely legal for any age with or without a licence (even if yours was taken away!).

No, you will be driving off-road on our dedicated course under our expert instructors. We provide all insurance and any necessary equipment.

No experience required, we’ll teach you all you need to know and have you driving in no time! The tank is probably the easiest thing to drive, then the, Gwagons, followed by the Unimog, then the Pinzgauers!

Both our Tanks have a fully automatic ZF Gearbox and a small steering wheel. There is no need to change gears and you just push the pedal to go faster, take it off to slow down! sounds easy right!?

We have two Tanks, a 15Ton IFV and a 12Ton APC, both are Saurer SCHÜTZENPANZER A1, a 4K 4FA-G2 and a 4K 3FA respectively. They are both highly agile, and easy to control armoured vehicles

All drivers are required to sign a waiver declaring they are physically and mentally fit enough to take part, and aware of all risks. You should speak to your GP before buying a voucher or booking if you feel there is any reason you or the recipient of the voucher might be unfit to take part.

Military Tanks, Trucks and 4×4’s only provide limited space that requires a reasonable level of mobility to enter and operate safely.  We will strive to make accommodations where we can but would encourage you to call us to discuss your individual requirements.

The instructor’s commands should be followed to the best of your ability. The instructor’s decision is final this includes the right to end your session early due to safety concerns. The driver and any accompanying persons must not be under the influence of or impaired by any substance, including alcohol, before or during the driving experience.
