What Can I Expect

Say hello to the heavyweights with an HGV driving choice voucher! We've grouped together all the best heavy goods vehicles on offer to give you an ultimate experience driving the heaviest vehicles out there.

Taking place at Prestwold near Loughborough, there's a full fleet of big, burly vehicles for you to drive. Let's start with the Scania. This 38-tonne articulated truck's day job is to transport up to 12 supercars for track days, but with motor-mad fans clamouring to have a go at the wheel, the Scania is in the fleet and is a firm favourite.

The double decker bus is just as you'd expect. It's big, long and double the height with its lower and upper decks. This is a genuine ex public transport Leyland that would have pounded the roads of the urban jungle for many years before retiring. Driving a 10m-long bus is pure joy and takes you back to your youthful days of going into town on the bus on a Saturday morning!

The coach is a vintage classic. The Harrington Legionnaire is actually quite a rare vehicle, but also pretty famous at the same time, thanks to the Legionnaire-bodied Bedford that starred in Michael Caine's The Italian Job film. Who could forget those dramatic final scenes with the bus and the cliff?

It's blues and twos abound with the Dennis fire engine. We always think it's a bit mad that you can buy a genuine, ex-fire service appliance - and some even come with firefighting equipment still onboard. We reckon they'll be a huge smile on your face when you drive this firefighting hero.

To give you maximum choice, we are offering HGV driving choice vouchers to drive three vehicles of your choosing, or to go the whole hog and drive all four. You can also pick between weekday-only, or anytime vouchers, which are valid for both weekday and weekend dates.
