This incredible Tank and Army Vehicle Driving Day in Derbyshire is an absolute must for any would-be soldiers or military enthusiasts; this is your chance to get behind the wheel of FOUR of the British Army's finest vehicles and get to grips with driving a mighty tank. During this uniquely exhilarating all-day activity, you can choose four vehicles to drive from an impressive list of seven. Will you first enter combat in the squaddies favourite armoured personnel carrier, the AFV432, before trying your hand at some manoeuvres in the DAF 4x4 Troop Carrier Vehicle? Will you climb aboard the Royal Marine favourite the BV 206 Hagglunds All Terrain Vehicle, where you can navigate your way around the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, before getting behind the wheel of the superb Military Police Land Rover Discovery? Or perhaps you want to get to grips with another British Army favourite, the Land Rover Series 3 109 ¾ ton FFR and then see how you fare in the OC TAD 8-wheel skid-steer vehicle? You will also have the opportunity to drive an incredible mini tank - as seen on Top Gear and The Gadget Show. Experience the thrill of military driving today and see how far you come!

Your Tank and Army Vehicle Driving Day will begin on arrival at the centre, where you will be given a combat uniform, camouflage cream and a helmet to put on. You will be given a thorough safety briefing from the trained instructors before you are split into groups of 4-5. You will be allocated a vehicle and an expert instructor to guide you before the fun begins; you will drive two vehicles in the morning, break for lunch, and then drive a further two. Lunch will be typical soldier fare to add to the authenticity of the experience - stews in winter, sandwiches in summer and bacon and sausages are standard. Tea and coffee is available throughout the day at any time.
