These half days offered at these locations are ideal for anyone wanting to gain experience and knowledge of the basic factors of driving 4x4 vehicles in  demanding and exciting off-road environments. During your tuition you will learn all about the main principles of off-road driving and experience situations such as slopes, ditches, ruts, mounds and lots of mud! 

You will also be taught techniques that will enable you to tackle steep hill climbs, recover from failed hill climbs and make safe descents. The vehicles used vary from location to location, but the pool of 4x4's used includes Vauxhall Frontera, Land Rover 110 and the Land Rover Discovery. 

The 3:1  tuition offered at all locations ensures you get lots of training time to master the art of 4x4 off-road driving. You will be tackling some outstanding off-roading terrain – ranging from a disused sandstone quarry to acres of varied woodland terrain. If you prefer a more personal driving adventure then we have many one to one off road courses on our main off roading section.

The experience starts with a safety briefing and then it’s your turn to take to the wheel as you start off on a ‘training ground’ – designed to give you an insight into some of the basic off-road conditions; crossing ditches, traversing side slopes, accelerating through mud and water and tackling 40 degree downhill slopes! 

Then it’s onto the ‘white knuckle’ stuff – water and mud up to the bonnet  (don’t worry, you’re not expected to wash the vehicles at the end of your experience!) as you drive through twisting, narrow terrain.  By the end of your experience you will be amazed that you have just driven through terrain that previously you would have thought impassable! - See more at:
