4WD Training Skill Set

Share this course on your social media page

Boost your 4WD skills and understand your car's capabilities in Australia's rugged terrain.

Whether you need to operate and maintain a 4WD on a remote worksite or simply wish to gain confidence driving in off-road conditions, this course will provide you with the skills you need to feel at ease behind the wheel. 

The delivery of this Skill Set will be face to face, combining both theory and practical exercises over a 2 day period – theory day 1 and practical day 2. You will be required to sit a theoretical exam on 4WD operation and safety. You will also get to put your theory into practice and perform a vehicle pre-start and a practical assessment which will include checking and driving the 4WD, the procedure of fitting a jack and recovery strap, inspecting the path of travel and routine maintenance, as well as, but not limited to, the vehicle utilising specific 4WD techniques.

  • Current driver’s licence
