Australian 4x4 Driver Training Courses

At Australian 4x4 Driver Training we believe in delivering what you have paid for - affordable and quality 4wd driver training - real training on real bush tracks -
don't settle for less

There are many reasons why people finish our 4wd driver training courses with a smile from ear to ear - but the main one is that by the end of the course, you will be handling the  types of obstacles that you would never have previously attempted, and doing them with ease and confidence.

We are an Approved Delegate of the Australian Skills Quality Authority. This status is by invitation only from ASQA to high performing Registered Training Organisations with a track record of compliance with the national training standards. (more info from ASQA)

We use real, and sometimes rough, bush tracks, the sort you will almost certainly come accross when you go out there, on your own, with your family and friends, you need to know how to drive them safely and confidently.

Our 4wd training courses cater for every level of experience, or inexperience, from absolute novices to those with a lot of experience and seeking advanced training.

However at Australian 4x4 Driver Training we understand that you may not have done this sort of thing before and that you are understandably nervous about what you are letting yourself in for.

Many of those that have attended our 4wd training courses in the past started off with absolutely no 4wd knowledge or experience, were possibly a little unsure and probably a bit nervous.

Our training methods will have you smiling and realising that you can do it very early on in the course.

Even those that have done 4wd driving before and simply want a refresher course learn heaps on our training days. 

Everyone has fun regardless of what experience you start the course off with.

Australian 4x4 Driver Training  courses are activity based rather than classroom centred, we don't sit in a classroom for hours, or next to a made made obstacle, just talking about it, we spend the time in the bush actually doing it

Your 4wd driver training course will teach you how to drive the various terrain types on your own and how to make your own good decisions 

Yes we will probably take you out of your comfort zone from time to time but we wouldn't be doing our job properly if we didn't

Australian 4x4 Driver Training does not use man made training centres because, quite simply, those facilities can never train you adequately for driving in the real bush compared to the way we do it

Man made training centre tracks don't look the same as real bush tracks because they are not the same and can never be and just can't give you the same learning experience as real bush tracks and never will.

On your 4wd driver training course you don't just follow our vehicle around all day, instead you will be putting into practice what you have learnt as you continue to better your skills throughout the 4wd driver training course.

Your trainer is the owner of Australian 4x4 Driver Training, is a fully qualified trainer with over 40 years of 4wd driving experience, much of which has been in remote places both in Australia and various countries overseas, and over 25 years of training experience and has a definite interest in making sure that you are getting the very best possible knowledge and experience out of your 4wd driver training course.

Rest assured that your health and safety, and the safety of your vehicle, are our number one priority at all times and the tracks that we use on the day/s of your 4wd driver training course will be determined by the weather and other conditions.

During your 4wd driver training course you will learn the correct and safe procedures to follow when you inevitably get your vehicle stuck and need to recover it including the safe use of snatch straps

Australian 4x4 Driver Training sets itself high standards for professionalism and 4wd driver training course delivery and even though our client list includes The Australian Defence Force, The Australian Federal Police, various other Federal, State and Local Government Departments,

electricity, remote communication, infrastructure, construction and maintenance, mining, geological, ecological, exploration, structural and civil engineering, transport, motor industry, film production and many others every single person enrolled in our courses is important to us, including you

I have been on 4 tag alongs with John. John's personal touch and knowledge of all things 4wd make for a most enjoyable trip. When travelling with John you can rest assured that you are travelling with someone who has the capability of handling almost any situation you are likely to encounter on a trip. The importance of this can't be understated when travelling some of the most remote areas in the country
Ivan, Mt Kuring Gai
John is a true professional with a vast knowledge in the off road adventure world who conducts himself in a friendly manner and at the same time brings the security that comes with at least 30 years of 4wd experience to make every trip a true adventure
