A half-day Introductory 4x4 course driving our Land Rovers over our challenging terrain, accompanied by one of our instructors
This experience will last a total of approx. 4 hour with approx. 4 hour in the vehicle.
A good starting point for those with no previous off road experience this course covers basic off road driving techniques. During this morning session we will progressively take you up to a level where you will have the skills to successfully negotiate obstacles whilst driving off road in a standard vehicle.
The instructors take a friendly step by step approach quickly moving from the classroom, where basic off road driving techniques have been explained - to the site, where walking the course first is an important starting point. Assessing the route on foot, prior to driving is vital when taking a 4x4 vehicle over undulating terrain, especially as visibility is restricted once you are in the driving seat.
The introductory circuits gradually increase in difficulty from muddy, undulating terrain to moderate gullies and sideslopes. A practical demonstration and discussion takes place to highlight the use of the differential lock and 4wd systems. Drivers will then be fully aware of vehicle limitations and what to look for when negotiating off road conditions.
We run a maximum ratio of three drivers per vehicle & instructor, but the driving is 1:1 with only the driver & instructor in the vehicle. As number of attendees increase, we just increase the number of vehicles & instructors available so everyone gets the same amount of driving.
Before you go home we supply lunch at no extra charge; you will have the option to upgrade on the day & stay for the afternoon; completing our full-day advanced course.
All drivers must hold a full driving licence and be pysically capable of walking over undultaing terrain. Maximum of 1 spectator over 16 years of age allowed to attend. NB: Spectators are not allowed in vehicles.
