Over two miles of roadway will be available for supervised demonstration drives in our Ride & Drive area, giving you the opportunity to try the vehicles in action. A full list of participants will be available at the registration point.
Vehicle tracking specialist Quartix has been selected to provide tracking services for the ‘Ride and Drive’ test facility, which will offer two areas: one for trucks and one for buses, coaches and vans.
All visitors wanting to demo a vehicle will need to pre-arrange a test drive with the exhibitor at the event and have your driving licence checked and approved by the Licence Bureau.
Please visit the West Entrance of the Exhibition Hall (opposite the entrance to the outdoor exhibition area). The Licence Bureau desk is next to the Registration Area.
You will then be supplied with a ‘Ride & Drive wristband’ to present to the exhibitor permitting you to drive.
Please ensure you bring a valid driving licence and driver qualification card with you. Without this you will be unable to participate in the Ride & Drive.
Unfortunately, we are unable to process non-UK licences during the event as there is a three-week lead time. Please contact the Licence Bureau on 01442 430980 well in advance if this affects you.
IMPORTANT: Please note all participants in the Ride & Drive will also need to be alcohol-tested prior to participating.
Drug and alcohol safety experts AlcoDigital are working in partnership with ITT Hub and will be providing drug and alcohol testing services for the ‘Ride & Drive’ test facility, which is set to be one of the most exciting and interactive parts of the exhibition.
They will use their innovative range of testing products to provide quick and reliable results, enabling drivers to get behind the wheel of a range of new commercial vehicles for a test drive in the Demonstration Hub.
