Vehicle based trips are becoming more popular. These expeditions can range from┬áa short half day drive, self drive safari holidays to a 6 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 specifically for you and your requirements. They range from a half day basic session to a 3 day advanced course; this way your training 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 vehicle dependant 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 real extensive experience, having led and taken part in numerous overland trips themselves. They have lived true overlanding and are passionate about sharing the skills they have picked up on the road. 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.

Basic sessions will cover vehicle checks, loading, understanding vehicle controls, basic 4×4 driving principles,┬ádriving on mild terrain, basic field repairs and recovery techniques. These start from ┬ú200.

Advanced courses for those undertaking longer trips cover additional areas including: assessing more demanding off road terrain, climbs/descents, failed hill climbs, water hazards, route planning, navigation, communication, basic on-road driving, border crossings and visas, field repair and much more. These start from £350.

All prices include course notes and a certificate of attendance.
