Military Driving Experience

A great fun day! First class instructor. Very informative with lots of genuine enthusiasm. Bought as a much appreciated Birthday gift with great result! The museum is an added bonus. It has lots of interesting vehicles. Good to see they are being looked after. There is also a basic cafe - you can get hot drinks and sandwiches.Lots of other experiences are available, but for my hubby, this was a pinnacle of many years ambitions. Something tells me that we will be returning!

Veyr good overall

Very good overall. Was not offered anything else to drive (apart from the tank) except the 3.5 Ton Bedford. I thought I should have been given the choice as per the information I had received. Still good but it is a fair point!
