  1. Samantha Kathleen

    Cannot praise this enough! Even a rookie driver like me was able to learn to drive on the sand. The staff were friendly, the views were spectacular and the adventure was awesome. This is a must for anyone wanting to learn to sand drive, use their 4wd in a different way or experience Stockton beach in a safe and exciting way.

    5 out 5 for experience & 5 out of 5 for value for money. An extremely useful course that provided enjoyment with practical knowledge to the point where even the most nervous driver felt enough confidence by the end.

    5 out of 5!
    I would recommend this Sand Driving Course as my son gained knowledge & confidence in himself & his vehicle. (I was his passenger) My son recently bought a 4WD with the desire to do some beach driving and even camping. He first attended the Drive & Recover a 4WD Course. He did things that he would never even think that he could have done. The instructors were friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and excellent communicators that enabled him to take on all challenges.

    I had a fantastic day, I’m still grinning.
    Our Guide, Paul was fabulous. I honestly can’t say enough on how great he was. His approach to imparting information was spot on, matter of fact, easy to absorb. He was professional in his manner, but super personable to make us all relaxed.
    We had a great group, we all conversed and got on so well.
    The day couldn’t have been any more perfect. I will not only recommend your company but I will definitely be taking other courses.
    5 stars out of 5!!!!
