Assessing the route on foot, prior to driving is vital when taking a 4×4 vehicle over undulating terrain, especially as visibility is restricted once in the driving seat.
It’s then into the vehicles to learn the different techniques required to drive off road. Hands on experience is gained in high and low ratio gearbox.
The introductory circuits gradually increase in difficulty from muddy, undulating terrain to mild declines/inclines & moderate gullies and side slopes.
A practical demonstration and discussion takes place to highlight the use of the differential lock and 4wd systems. Drivers will then be fully aware of vehicle limitations and what to look for when negotiating off road conditions.
We meet back to the classroom for a debriefing and a well-deserved sandwich lunch. This course will give you the basic experience to progress on to more advanced levels.
Attendees wishing to stay for the rest of the day, therefore upgrading to the Advanced Course, are welcome to discuss this possibility with one of their instructors during the morning.
