Driving Days 2023

Again, especially for you, we have arranged with several places throughout the country for the opportunity to drive or steer a traction engine or steam roller in the safety of private ground without the public being present. Those of you who have been on previous days will know how much fun it is.

If you wish to participate fill in this form and send it to our Driving Days Coordinator, Nick Bosworth (address on the form) so that we can make the necessary arrangements. Please include your email address and phone number for us to contact you. If you do not have an email address, please include a SAE.

Please see the application forms for the price of each driving day.

New Online Payment System

We've changed the way you can pay for the driving days. You can still send a cheque with your application form, but you can now also pay for driving days using our driving days 'online shop'.
Follow this link to the NTET's online shop, and add the driving days you wish to attend to your basket, then complete checkout.
This system can accept PayPal and card payments.
If you use this system please remember to include your membership number in the 'notes' section at checkout, so we can match the payment to your application form.

If paying online, you must still send in an application form by post (or scanned/emailed).
