Start your next adventure the right way. This one-day hands-on course will give you the fundamental 4WD skills you need to drive off-road with confidence.  It will prepare you for any off road driving situation, even those you didn’t know could occur.

This nationally recognised off road training course also includes the comprehensive Getabout Training 4WD Guide Book.

Please note: Some regions/venues have a surcharge so the basic course cost may change depending on location.

You’ll learn how to:

  • take your 4WD vehicle over different terrains – from sand and slopes to dirt and ditches
  • safely cross water
  • recover your vehicle if it gets bogged
  • change a wheel
  • drive to minimise your impact on the environment

How it works

Please click here for information on Getabout and Tow-Ed's Response to COVID-19

When you register for the course, we’ll post the Guide Book to you. You’ll get plenty of time to read it as prep before your driver training day, and you’ll complete some short written exercises based on your reading.

On the day of your training, bring your 4WD vehicle and we’ll review your answers and discuss any questions – then it’s time to get behind the wheel!

We have a maximum instructor-student ratio of 1:6, so you’ll receive personalised training to get the skills you need. 

Further student information, including Terms & Conditions, is available here.
