Prepare your self for some serious off road action! Your experience starts with a short briefing on your impressive 4x4 vehicle and familiarisation of the controls. Then, once your instructor has taken you through the basics of off-road driving techniques, you'll take to the wheel and discover the true potential of a 4x4 vehicle. The laps will become progressively more challenging as you master the skills to tackle steep hills, gullies, deep ruts, ridges and ditches. Enjoy!
Most centres include restrictions on age, weight or height and also require you hold a full manual driving licence.
The weather should not affect this experience, but any cancellations are for your own safety. Please call the centre before you leave if in any doubt. Wet weather can make for an even more exciting, muddy adventure.

You will share your experience with a team of up to three drivers. Please note an exclusive session for up to 4 drivers is available, please contact us for details.

Off Road 4x4 Driving: Fascinating Facts
Taking a 4x4 over rough terrain can give the driver a desire to explore even wilder locations. The first rule is never to drive faster than is absolutely necessary, and to take obstacles at a slow and steady pace. The second rule is always to prepare for the worst case scenario. In rocky areas drive slowly, and engage low ratio four-wheel drive to give greater vehicle control. In deep V-shaped gullies, be careful not to drop one side of the vehicle into the deepest point; drive with the wheels straddling the gully so as not to end up hopelessly jammed in a position where digging and pushing do not help. Heavily used tracks are often deeply rutted so drive with one wheel in a rut and the other on the hump to prevent the vehicle's undercarriage getting hung up. If negotiating mud, map your route using sticks jammed into the ground to indicate drop-offs and other hazards, mark the exact position the steering-wheel is in when the wheels are pointed dead ahead. It's easy to turn the wheels too far to one side without realising it, as the vehicle continues going in a straight line, getting more bogged by the second. Happy motoring!
