Was it always your childhood dream to join the fire service? Well now you can feel like you did - for 15 minutes at least!
Once you arrive at the venue you will need to sign in and collect your itinerary. You will then be given a full safety briefing within the cab of the fire engine to get you used to the size of the vehicle and all the different buttons - the Fire Engine is over 10 metres long so it'll certainly be a new experience to the standard driver.
After a qualified instructor has given you a full introduction you will be taken over to the purpose built auto test centre to attempt to complete the course, complete with slaloms and tight technical sections, you will event attempt reversing!
You will receive a certificate at the end of your experience to commemorate your experience.
