This testing course is for the experienced off road driver who has already successfully completed our Advanced 4x4 day and continues to regularly drive off road. During this intensive full day, using our vehicles & recovery equipment, you will learn how to resolve most of the common off road situations and dilemmas likely to be faced when going it alone or during competition.
This course is best tackled in wet weather to challenge the driver’s ability and lateral thinking, to safely negotiate obstacles that are beyond the vehicle's capabilities. You will work as a team, either with the instructor or with a maximum of one other participant.
The day begins with a warm up on our harder circuits to refresh the material covered on our Advanced 4x4 Course, including a challenging session on some of our most severe terrain, whilst following the instructor in a separate vehicle. A chance to catch a breather and lunch will be closely followed by some hands on experience with commonly used recovery equipment and accessories, including bridging ladders, ropes and highlift jacks.
We then move on to winching, explaining the different types, how to signal, rig and use them safely. During this practical session you will learn how to use ground anchors, snatch blocks, shackles and strops effectively and test your mental agility and endurance.
Other topics covered include vehicle preparation, competition standards and makeshift repairs. Vehicles used will be modified to suit the severity of the terrain likely to be negotiated.
Clients booking this course are advised to bring a change of clothing! (Although, coveralls can be supplied to minimise the mess)
