Oddy,

We went through Duncans Offroad 4WD Driver Training and found both the bush and beach courses to be very good. Duncans are a nationally accredited trainer as well and I think this is an important feature to look for in anyone you pick. Contact phone number is 07 32733029.

We have been offroading for years and only did the courses about 18 months ago and they were great.

We covered core driving skills, vehicle recovery, etc and it is all competency based. Generally the days started with the required theory followed by a lot of supervised practice and then to pass at the end of the day you need to be able to perform the tasks taught.

On top of the practical stuff, a lot of time is spent talking about looking after the environment, vehicle maintenance etc and this is excellent.

It is all done in a great positive environment and is very relaxed.

Like I said earlier we have been off roading for a lot of years and we learnt a lot.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Hi Oddy,

My wife and I did a one day course with Duncan's that was quite good. It particularly gave my wife a great deal more confidence but it also opened my eyes to a few things I didn't realise. Probably depends a lot on who is actually running the course.

Also the Mitsubishi 4wd club in Brisbane runs a driver training program that looks very good (I was a member for a few years but wasn't really using the club so dropped out). I am sure a lot of the other clubs would have driver training as well.

Hope that helps.

Timj.

Not sure if joining a club is an option, but most 4WD clubs offer some form of Driver Training.
