Vehicle based trips are becoming more popular. These expeditions can range from a short half day drive, self drive safari holidays to a 12 month major overseas adventure. Regardless of length, they all involve an element of preparation. Let us help you fully prepare with a bespoke course and you can be sure the challenges which initially seem daunting will become part of any eventful day on the road after you’ve received the best training.
You need the right level of preparation that suits you and gives enough confidence in a venture that’ll deliver unexpected challenges. We do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach, rather the course will be tailored for specifically for you and your requirements. Here at True Grip, based on our collective years of experience and knowledge, we have crafted a fully comprehensive overland training programme that will completely prepare you for all aspects of vehicle dependent expeditions. The modules that we offer can be cherry picked based on your needs. Overland courses range from one to three days depending on the intensity of your aims; this way your time with us will be cost-effective, relevant and will give you adequate planning and knowledge.

Getting off a tarmac road and onto a dirt track is a large part of 4×4 overlanding. Here, driving becomes more engaging and so requires more attention but can also be very enjoyable. It is not about tackling terrifying obstacles, instead learn how to get the most from your vehicle in light of these issues, how it behaves off road and how far you can go in certain conditions.
Our instructors have extensive real-world experience, having led and driven in numerous overland trips themselves. They have lived true overlanding and are passionate about sharing the skills they have picked up along the way. These include military expeditions all over the world, 4×4 manufacturer expeditions and independent travelling. Our collective knowledge and enthusiasm allows us to provide the highest quality and enjoyable courses.
