Choose from Three Options

Each driving experience begins with an informational bonanza that covers the history of wartime vehicles such as the FV433 Abbot SPG, a self-propelled gun vehicle. After a safety-and-familiarization course, participants ride in a military loop transport truck to the hidden field-command headquarters. There, they receive driving instruction, and hop into an armored FV433 for one lap around a wooded course. Next, they ride back to the training facility to participate in firearm safety training and fire a fully automatic machine gun at the indoor range while an instructor stands ready to assist.

Drive A Tank, Inc

Drive A Tank teaches civilians how to handle tanks by placing them at the controls of an FV433 Abbot tank. Comprehensive tank experiences include lessons on the history of its use, from World War I up to its present function as the vehicle of choice for the most aggressive holiday shoppers. During certain packages, tanksters complete their militaristic forays by test firing WWII-era weaponry or crushing cars beneath behemoth treads.
