The above training will look at vehicle preparation before tackling any obstacles. We specifically focus on assessing the obstacles before driving onto or through them, this may include walking obstacles for route planning etc. This also include gravel road driving at our facility.

Our instructor will be training on physically driving the obstacles in terms of gear selection (including Low & High Range) selection, braking & acceleration techniques. We also have key hints that we share with trainees that our instructors have acquired over the years.

On completion of the course successful trainees will receive their Off-road 4x4 Certification.

Please note that this is a full day course.

All training is conducted in our client’s vehicles on site in Muldersdrift.
