Public courses run on a selection of Saturdays and Sundays from March until the end of the year.
Tank driving activity days last approximately 3.5hours, and are available mornings (9.00am to 12.30pm) or afternoons (1.00pm to 4.30pm). All our guests will receive full driving tuition in the reassuring company of our friendly and experienced instructors, some of whom served in the Falklands and Gulf Wars, and have some interesting stories to tell. Our ratio of guests to vehicles is set to keep all participants pleasantly busy throughout the session.
This course is suitable for the public ages 16 and upwards. No previous tank driving experience is required and nobody will be required to drive beyond their capabilities. To help us maintain our excellent safety record participants must exercise due care at all times and follow the instructions and advice of our instructors.
