Why buy from us?
In America, bigger means better, and that logic definitely applies to trucks. Don't take our word for it though, see for yourself with the American Truck Driving Experience. Your day starts with a safety briefing before 30 minutes of one-to-one driving where you'll be driving and manoeuvring the truck around a short course. This really is the perfect experience for any truck enthusiasts, or anyone looking to drive something out of the ordinary!
Arrival, registration and safety briefing
30 minutes one-to-one driving
5 minute passenger ride
Please allow up to 3 hours at the venue.
Please be aware these trucks are left-hand drive, have steep steps. They have several gears in different ranges and no synchromesh, therefore you have to double the clutch to change gear. It takes varying lengths of time for individuals to become accustomed to using the gear system. The Driving experience is taken from the time you enter the truck, therefore, individuals will achieve different goals during the time. You have booked a time slot not an indefinite time to become accustomed to using the gears.
Vouchers are valid for 10-months. You can upgrade the validity to 14 months when you order.
