We do not know every exhibitors requirements, however if you wish to drive a vehicle at Cenex-LCV 2017, we recommend viewing the Ride & Drive requirements.

The Circuits

With a choice of 3 circuit layouts, you can demonstrate any type of vehicle, in a variety of environments.

City Circuit

The city course offers a means of simulating low speed urban driving conditions to judge vehicle performance.

High Speed Circuit

The circular, banked track and multi-lane configuration provides a unique facility for evaluating the acceleration and dynamics of low carbon vehicles. Each lane has its own neutral steering pad speed to simulate long distance motorway driving.

Hill Route

Gradients of 6.7% to 21% provide a unique facility to evaluate powertrains, transmissions, dynamics, braking and active systems for all types of low and ultra low carbon vehicles.

Driver Requirements

Exhibitors manage their own Ride & Drive bookings for the Cenex-LCV show, and each has their own insurance requirements as to the type of driving licence evidence required. Exact requirements can be obtained from the exhibitors on arrival at their exhibition stand.

As a minimum it is expected that all visitors who wish to drive in a vehicle will be required to show their driving licence when booking a drive with an exhibitor.

With the removal of conventional paper licences Cenex-LCV recommends that visitors download a driving licence code, and print their driving licence summary including penalty points, that will allow an exhibitor to check a visitor’s driving licence information (e.g. the vehicles they can drive or any penalty points). The code lasts up to 21 days after creation.

To generate a code:

  • Go to www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence and enter your driving licence number, national insurance number and postcode.
  • Click the ‘share your licence information’ tab and ‘create code’.
  • This will create your licence check code.
  • Click ‘view, print or save your licence information’ and print a copy of this document and bring it with you to the event.
  • An example of the document can see seen here.

Please ensure you print you driving licence summary in order to make your ride and drive booking system smoother with each exhibitor. Otherwise each exhibitor will need to call the DVLA on your behalf to verify whether you have any points on your licence.

For our European visitors, please speak to the exhibitor directly when booking a ride and drive and they will be able to confirm their requirements.
