About Australian 4x4 Driver Training

Hi, my name is John Cantrell and I operate my businesses with the help of my wife, Amanda. I trade as Australian 4x4 Driver Training, Australian 4x4 Travel and Australian 4x4 Tag Along Tours. and am based in the Blue Mountains, near Sydney.

Australian 4x4 Driver Training is one of the leading 4wd driver training businesses in New South Wales with a well proven track record. It is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO # 91518) and delivers Nationally Accredited and Certified training to Government Departments, the mining and private sectors as well as to members of the public.

Australian 4x4 Driver Training was also the first Registered Training Organisation offering dedicated 4wd driver training services to be given the status of Approved Delegate of the Australian Skills Quality Authority. This status is by invitation only from ASQA and is only available to those training organisations who have demonstrated a history of compliance with the national standards. More Info

With many decades of four wheel drive driving experience over all kinds of terrain in Australia and overseas and with over 30 years of experience in developing and delivering training courses at one-on-one, group and corporate levels, I have designed my 4wd driving courses to give you the maximum benefit of my experience and in a manner that is easy to follow and understand and should be fun as well as rewarding.

I don't conduct training courses on man made tracks because I don't think they prepare you for the real world. All of my courses are conducted in the bush in a realistic off road environment on bush tracks that are sometimes rough

My courses are constantly under review as I continually strive to deliver excellence in training and my methods are regularly updated in line with best industry practice.

I was the first New South Wales 4wd driver training business to be approved to offer training in the new and updated 4wd driver training units of competency which included -


Apart from my commercial driver training activities I also run 4wd Tag along tours, mainly to the North Simpson Desert, The Outback and Victorian High Country, several times a year .

My 4wd tag along tours tend to have Australian 4wd destinations that more remote than others, are run on a less regimented basis than most and have the aim of delivering the tag along participants with the best experiences that leave fond memories for years to come.

On one of my trips through the desert we probably won't even see any tracks for several days, let alone any other people or vehicles.

I have a Special Purpose permit from Forestry Corp NSW, an Eco Pass from National Parks and Wildlife Service NSW, a tour operators licence for Parks Victoria as well as from National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia.

I am also a member of the 4wd NSW ACT Driver Training Unit, this is a voluntary position that lets me return something to those involved in 4wd recreational activities that has been my passion for so long, as well as a past director, training officer and driver trainer for the Range Rover Club of NSW
