What Can I Expect

Get your hands on a highway heavyweight when you go Volvo truck driving! Volvo lorries are commonplace on our motorways, but what are they like to drive on a special track? This is your chance to find out with Volvo lorry drives at circuits around the UK.

You will be driving a Volvo FH460 tractor plus trailer set up. It might look like your typical articulated lorry, but behind those curtain sides the payload is a collection of supercars! As you might guess, the operators make sure those precious cars are all off-loaded before you start your drive…

Volvo lorries are just as you'd expect. Chunky, reliable and comfy cabs for the drivers. It's a climb to get up there, but once you're at the wheel, you'll be sitting around 10ft above the ground, giving you a really good view of the road ahead. This helps lorry drivers to anticipate what's happening, which is handy as it takes a while to stop an 18-tonne lorry!

And setting off is a fairly slow affair in a lorry. You build up speed slowly and it becomes all about momentum. But these modern Volvo trucks make driving easy with fully automatic transmission. Simply put the FH460 into drive and you're rolling.

As you negotiate the specially laid-out course you'll get a proper feel of what it's like to be a lorry driver. Things will start getting tricky when you take on the slalom challenge. When do you turn in? Too late and you cut wide, too early and you make mincemeat of the cone. And when it comes to reversing, you'll instinctively be looking for the (non-existent) rear view mirror...but no, it's all done with the side mirrors!

For these experiences you get to drive the Volvo for around 15-20 minutes. You can double the time with an Extended Lorry Drive voucher and you can even chuck a supercar drive into the mix for a three or six-mile add-on. If you've always wanted to be a trucker, these great value Volvo lorry driving sessions are the ones for you!
