Hi All,
Well, thanks for previous advice re Prado, Hilux, Navara, Pathy etc. Signed up today for a brand spanker Pathy Ti. "Last one in Aust" so the sales pitch goes.....

Now, being a complete newbie, anyone got any good recommendations for a Melb based driver training centre to tell me how to use it properly and safely?

Andrew Four wheel drive Victoria do a good basic course. Look on this SITE then open up "training", "courses & costs", "driver training" then "beginer courses".
Alternatively you could join one of the many clubs in Melbourne & then do the same accredited training course often for free. This has the added benifit of continuing to learn under the guidence of other members on each trip you attend.
Cheers Craig.........

I agree

Join a 4WD club and do an accredited course.

You also get the benefits of being a member of the club.

Life's great and it just keeps getting better

I used to be a rec mech with the Army in the 60's and though I knew a lot. We got a LC and looked at training before getting stuck. We found the best way was to join a club. Yes we also checked out the training staff before joining as that was one of the reasons we joined. The leader was a professional off road trainer. So off I go to the course thinking things I shouldn't. I will tell you one thing though - snatch straps beat half inch steel wires. They don't pull as many front ends off.

I learnt heaps and my wife is doing hers as I type. No worries watching all the footy last night. We also found a great bunch of new friends and travelling mates.

DO IT. Join a club.
