Hi,
Am looking to do a basic / intermediate driver training course. I live on the mornington peninsula and have found this place in Croydon via the yellow pages;

Websters 4WD Driver Training
Croydon
VIC, 3136
Australia

Has anyone done a course here ?? If so was it good ?? was it value for money??
Should I go here??

Their doesn't seem to be many options for courses in metro Melb, any advice appreciated.....

Cheers.

Numerous options.

Join a club, usually get free driver training, + LOTS of help and ideas.

Also meet lots of people interested in the same stuff as yourself.

Im on the Peninsular too.

Im in the Nissan club, but we take any make and model cars..... ;)~
Meeting in few weeks if you would like to tag along. We have fully accredited driver trainers.

Theres a few of us on this forum in that club.

Meetings are held first Wednesdays at ~ 7.30pm.

DECA Training, based in Altona and Sheppparton run courses, the content is very good, they are a bit expensive. The courses are only run on weekdays, and normally out of Shepprton. They will run them from Altona if you can get 4 people, (same rule for Shepparton too.) You can use their vehicle or your own.

Zed I have done the basic - intermediate drivers course at Webster's and I can highly recommend them.

John Webster IIRC is an ex-copper and used to do off-road training in the force so has plenty of exprerience.

John and his teams expertise and knowledge where invaluable to myself getting into 4WDriving. Our group found that there professionalism and organisation was well above other training courses that we bumped into along the way - who seemed to be running around all over the place with a high level of confusion.

I am also thinking in the near future of going on his advanced course.

Cheers,
Rhu

P.S Let me know if you have any other questions about the Webster's course.

Wife's boss did a course with Websters & said was pretty good. I did a program with Safetrek, which was excellent. Theory done at Box Hill Tafe on the Thursday night (3 hrs) & practical on the following Sunday in Toolangi State Forest. Jim Kennedy is the boss/instructor & has many yrs 4wding. He is also V/Pres of 4wd Vic. Check www.safetrek.com.au.
