Unconventional, extraordinary & unique drives

Unique vehicles and unusual driving experiences. To be honest, we didn’t know where to put this collection of atypical driving days on our website, so we created this Unusual Driving section especially for our eclectic collection of unusual vehicles.

If you’ve already driven the rest, then it’s time to think outside the box and buy a voucher to drive something completely different! 

Harking back to your childhood with some remarkable vehicles

Many of these experiences are the stuff of childhood dreams. A far cry from the dull commute to work, these experiences will get your realising those day dreams of your younger years.

Drive a bus

Who hasn't dreamt of driving a classic big, red double decker bus? This is your chance to grab that huge steering wheel and take an original London Routemaster bus for a spin around an airfield coned circuit.

And take a look at this clip to see an experience day client demonstrating just how easy it is (or not!) to slalom in a Routemaster bus .

Digging up the dirt

If it's all about heavy plant machinery, you'll love the diggers, earth movers and dumper trucks. Again, these are vehicles you see on building sites all over the country on a daily basis, but it's not that common to see them offered to the general public. These are experiences you should definitely book up in advance, as all things JCB and digger are permanently popular.

Farm vehicle driving fun

Down on the farm, our tractor and combine harvester drives are really, really popular. Again, it’s all about realising those dreams of when we played with model tractors when we were little. And we have to say, modern tractors are amazing high-tech machines that really are the essential tool for any farmer. And they are great fun to drive too.

Sirens on, it's the fire engine

And don’t forget the fire engines. It’s not every day you get the chance to switch on the blues and twos and go nee-nahh-ing around a circuit! If you’re thinking of buying a fire engine drive as a gift, you can’t go wrong. After all, everyone loves a Dennis fire appliance!

This is just a little taster of the fleet of unusual vehicles that are on our books. Have a browse of this rather distinctive section of our website and see what you can dig up!
