information Venue Details

Get ready to put your off-road driving skills to the ultimate test by heading to our Coleford venue to take on one of the trickiest 4x4 courses in the country! The tailor-made course built on the site of a former quarry features some of the trickiest obstacles around including deep ditches, impossibly steep hills and ever changing terrain. But with a fleet of top of the off-road vehicles, as well as incredibly experienced instructors, even children as young as 14 can learn the techniques needed to negotiate almost any obstacle.

This off road centre is officially one of the best in the country and with BORDA instructors on hand it's easy to see why. We can also cater for stag/hen do's, team building days out and team building sessions to give you an event like no other.

    • "This was a very enjoyable and informative course. Dave was a great trainer and explained all elements in simple terms, especially important for myself being a complete off road novice. As a driving instructor I hope to use some of the information gained in future training with my own students.
