Two day practical 4WD driving course for all adult drivers and P-platers. This course teaches the driving techniques specific to 4WD vehicles, which are not taught to day-to-day drivers.

Theoretical explanations are reinforced by practical exercises carried out on Roadcraft’s purpose-built training circuits. You will have the tools to be a much safer four-wheel driver by the end of the course, with the ability to manoeuvre effectively across a variety of terrains, making you more comfortable on your next adventure.
