Are you really skilled up? Do you need to brush up on your 4WD training?

We’re often amazed at the number of people who are willing to spend upwards of 50 or 60 thousand dollars on a new 4WD, or even tens of thousands on a second hand one and then thousands more adding winches and recovery gear, but not even consider spending several hundred dollars for some 4wd training to learn how to use their vehicle and equipment properly and safely, ….. So are you in search of some new skills?

Having the confidence to tackle a sand dune or steep rocky incline is one thing, but backing this up with the correct and (more importantly) safe operating techniques of your vehicle and any accessories you may have bought for it, as well as understanding your own abilities is something which takes a long time to learn.

Even then, years of experience doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll make it to the top of that hill unscathed. Do you know how to do a Key Stall/Stop Start? What if you need a recovery? Do you know how to use the recovery equipment you have properly and safely? Which recovery technique is most suitable? Under what circumstances should you use your snatch strap? What difference will tyre pressures make? Should you leave your traction control on or off?

Understanding you and your vehicles abilities when 4WD touring can make all the difference to your trip and at Pindan Tours and 4WD Training we understand this in offering our wide range of 4WD Driving & Recovery courses. or you can combine your 4WD course or 4WD courses with our Unsealed (Dirt) Road Defensive Driving course. We also offer a stand alone course in gravel road defensive driver training including emergency braking techniques, cornering techniques and evasive action/accident avoidance techniques.

Pindan Tours and 4WD Training offer everything from an individual introductory 4WD driving course through to Advanced Recovery and Sand Driving as well a customised 4WD course for industry and government. Corporate Training is provided to companies that wish to reduce the risk of possible injury to staff or damage to their vehicles and to meet WH&S issues with their employees. Or perhaps you want a Team Building Exercise with a difference, or just to reward your staff for a job well done – Our training and Incentive Days are the answer.

So, whether you’re new to four wheel driving or in the process of planning your next big trip and have a new or old 4wd, we strongly recommend you consider learning the right way to handle your vehicle through one of our 4WD training courses. Our Training is delivered by professional and accredited Workplace Trainers and Assessors and includes a detailed 4WD Operators Reference Manual for you to keep.
