4 x 4 Driver Training


The amount of off-highway recreation vehicles has increased over the years. There is no special license required to drive off-road, even though there are many different techniques and practices involved. To drive a vehicle off road requires an entirely different set of skills to driving on road. Added to those skills must be included training in the safe and correct means of handling a vehicle recovery.
