Drive our Land Rover Defender 110 for a half day session, as your instructor guides you over obstacles including steep hills, deep water, side slopes, slippery mud, and rough rocks, all the time learning the techniques required to safely tackle this tricky terrain. Perfect for recreational off roaders, or those who have just bought or are about to buy their own 4x4.
You'll spend the morning at our dedicated training site at Robin Hood's Bay near Whitby, learning how to handle our Land Rover in various off road situations. At lunchtime we'll take a break before spending the afternoon 'in the real world' on the tracks and trails of the North York Moors National Park, putting into practice everything you've learned.
Have you recently purchased a 4x4 vehicle? These vehicles have many subtle differences from a standard 2 wheel drive car. Modern 4x4's also often have advanced technical systems to help you when on difficult terrain, or in wintry conditions. A 1:1 session with an instructor, in your own vehicle, will help you get to grips with all aspects of your new vehicle.
On scheduled dates throughout the year, we run Skills Training Days for small groups of Land Rover owners. We'll work through a variety of off road terrain and obstacles, with our vehicle demonstrating each obstacle before we start. Instructors will be on hand to guide you, and there'll be time for up to 2 drivers per vehicle to learn safe and effective off road driving techniques.
Land Rover's Terrain Response system is a complex collection of technologies to enhance the off road ability of you and your vehicle, and was fitted to most modern Land Rovers (except Defender) from 2005 onwards. Our full day training course will give you an understanding of how you can fine tune the vehicle to give you the best possible help whilst driving off road.
If you use your 4x4 for work, or if you're planning a long expedition, professional training will help you understand how your 4x4 works, and how to stay safe whilst driving it. On our courses you will learn how 4 wheel drive systems work, and how to safely navigate a variety of terrain and obstacles, with a focus on reading the ground and minimising risk.
