    Great day. The instructor was experienced, patient and friendly. The location gave us plenty of practice over a wide variety of terrains. The course went for a full day which was very satisfying and as well as learning lots, we felt safe and had a lot of fun.

      Warren, we are glad you had a great day and learnt alot about safe 4WD driving!

  2. Edwina McCoy

    We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Excellent trainer with a fun range of activities. Living on the coast as we do, some work in sand would have been useful, even if only in theory.

      Thanks Edwina. We are happy you found the course useful and fun. We do have a separate sand driving experience by the same trainers if you are interested. Go to

    I recommend this course for somebody that has never driven a vehicle off road, whilst also for those whom have experience in driving off road there is still areas where there is room to improve and different techniques can be the difference in damaging a vehicle or injury to persons or getting out of that sticky situation safely.The instructor was very knowledgeable and very specific in explaining the methods used to newcomers to the off road scene. The instructions catered the course well.

      Hi William, I’m glad you enjoyed your 4WD training & that the instructor was very knowledgeable.

    I would recommend this course to the novice because at the end of the course my son gained knowledge and, most of all, confidence in himself and his vehicle. (I was his passenger) He did things that he would never even think that he could have done. He then attended the Sand Driving Course. The instructors on both occasions were friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and excellent communicators that enabled all participants to take on all challenges. 5 out of 5!

    The course was outstanding!!!
    Value for money – 5
    Course – 5
    Our trainer Paul was just awesome and we all had such a great day. Personally for me the course could’ve gone longer but I think that was because I was enjoying myself to much.

      Dylan, we are so happy you had a great training day. Unfortunately if the course was any longer you would of been driving around in the dark! 🙂
