For those looking to understand the basic techniques required to use a 4x4 off-road, this half-day session is an ideal starting point. After a safety briefing and a basic description of the 4wd system, high/low range gears and differentials on the vehicle you are about to drive, it will be time to put theory into practice on the variety of sections throughout our site. With an experienced instructor alongside, you'll be negotiating areas with mud, ditches, ridges or water (weather permitting) inclines and declines that test your ability to read the ground and successfully negotiate the wide variety of challenging sections and obstacles. At the end of this morning course we will provide lunch and present you with a certificate before you leave. All drivers will also be expected to walk sections with the instructor prior to driving each of them to assess the route, risks & obstacles.

This incredible experience gives the next generation of off-road drivers the chance to take the wheel of one of our manual geared 4x4 vehicles & learn basic techniques when using a 4x4 vehicle off-road. With an experienced off-road instructor by their side, the junior will take on a series of off-road obstacles including inclines and declines, ruts and ditches as well as slippery and unpredictable dirt tracks. This 1:1 course can be tailored to the ability of the junior, so can be more challenging for those with some experience behind the wheel or provide more in-depth instruction & practice for those with little or no previous experience. With approximately 2.5hr hours at the wheel, there’s plenty of time to build confidence & practice your new off-road skills to tackle terrain you never thought possible. You will receive a certificate before you leave our centre. Important information:

Available for juniors aged 14-17 years of age. Juniors will be expected to walk the more challenging sections with the instructor prior to driving them to assess the route, risks & obstacles.
