Imagine yourself at the wheel of an intriguing Ferret armoured scout car, driving the 4.5 ton vehicle over undulating rugged terrain. Enjoy the roar of the Rolls Royce engine during this exciting 2.5 hour experience.
Your armoured vehicle drive course experience will begin with instruction on the technical details of the vehicle, method of driving and safety aspects. Next is a guided inspection when all the design features are explained. Then you get behind the wheel of the Ferret, put on the headphones and you will be in direct contact with your instructor who will be in the turret. Run through the five gears with a pre-selecter gearbox, admire the military features and swing the gun turret! The instruction will be on a specially designed off-road testing course, where you will master the gears and go up and down the hills.
At the end of the course you will be presented with a certificate which features a photo of you and the armoured vehicle.
This experience is available on weekends however in special circumstances - interstate travel, for example - weekday bookings will be considered. The duration of your experience will be 2.5 hours.
