What can I expect on the day

Mini truckers will go wild for this chance to try truck driving for kids, an ingenious experience that puts your teenage tearaways behind the wheel of a proper truck on a special private circuit, well away from the public roads.

The truck they will be driving is a 55ft long articulated DAF rig which, when it’s not giving your darling teens an eye-opening experience, spends its days pounding the roads of the UK. The standard truck cab is attached to a full-sided trailer that is used to transport cars to race day venues around the country; this is no modified machine that’s been tweaked to suit kids’ truck driving abilities or a training vehicle – it’s the real thing.

Despite having 16 gears, kids don’t need a license for driving this behemoth of a truck – just a minimum height of 5ft4in and a penchant for powerful motors. Standing next to one of these rigs, you can see why they’re called HGVs – there’s nothing delicate or light about them. Jump into the hydraulic driver’s seat and you’ll be surprised by how high above the road you are. It’s a real change in perspective.

The total time behind the truck’s steering wheel is 15 minutes, so youngsters will get a true feel for handling big vehicles without feeling overwhelmed. A fully qualified instructor is in the cab at all times, explaining the intricacies of driving such an immense truck, as well as giving tips and tuition on how to get the most from your driving time.

The gears aren’t an issue either, as you can operate the truck in automatic mode – no clutch control necessary! Kids will love this opportunity to take control on proper tarmac and because the circuit is not linked to any public roads, there are no other vehicles to worry about.

Give someone young a grown-up experience and let them get a proper sense of what it’s like to be a proper trucker. Our truck driving for kids session is sure to be a hit with boys and girls alike and we bet a fair few of the spectating adults will feel a twinge of jealousy as they watch the HGV trundling along the route.

Bought the truck experience for my son's 13th birthday. He absolutely loved it. The experience at Bruntingthorpe was well organised and his instructor was lovely. A definite hit!
Yes, I recommend this product.
