Offroad Ready Courses

Offroad Ready Courses are our courses for recreational drivers. They are not formal qualifications or nationally-recognised courses, but they do equip you with the important information to get Offroad Ready, and to have some serious fun with your 4WD vehicle!


They are also a fantastic option for those who have recently purchased a 4WD and want to learn how to set up their vehicles for offroad success, including learning about the traction technology.

These can be delivered as individual training, group training, or in corporate groups.


Offroad Ready Courses are fantastic days to be shared with friends, family or simply the chance to meet like-minded people who are passionate about exploring Australia's extraordinary cultural and natural environments.

Whether you are planning a trip to Cape York, K'Gari (Fraser Island), the Desert, or simply a trip to the beach, we have the courses for you. 

All of these courses are run multiple times a year in various locations Australia-wide, so do get in touch if you have any questions or whether you would like to provide an Expression Of Interest in any of them.
