Vat4 Safaris & 4x4 Training

The Course

The aim of our course is to familiarize owners with their vehicles, to realize the full capabilities of off-road vehicles and to gain self-confidence and responsibility towards the maintenance and care of their vehicles. Our emphasis is on education and responsibility – treading with respect.

A typical training day starts with a theoretical session covering subjects like suspension and transmission set-ups, body and chassis designs, engines and the environment.

During the practical session on the obstacle course various driving techniques are demonstrated – on as well as off road. We look at the correct way to read an obstacle, usage of the brake and clutch, high and low gearing and braking methods. A lot of emphasis is placed on safety – following distances, entering obstacles, reading the correct line and momentum vs speed and traction.

A course of this nature prepares an owner for any off road eventuality and is therefore a prerequisite for any prospective vehicle owner.
