Driver Training The Club offers basic driver training for members. Formal 2 day courses are run once a year & you only need to be a financial member of the club to apply. For those members who wish to gain a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment (Drive and Recover a 4WD Vehicle), we have qualified Trainer/Assessors and linkages with a RTO (Getabout Training Services). Fees apply.
Why do 4WD driver training?
Gain the knowledge and skills to competently drive a 4WD vehicle in off road situations to minimise risks of accidents, incidents and the need for vehicle recovery.
Improve the confidence and competence of trip leaders.
Promote confidence of trip participants that the leader is competent.
Be able to efficiently and safely recover/extract a stuck vehicle.
Enhance the enjoyment of 4Wdriving through improved confidence. This is especially evident if travelling with a group of people who have been trained to the same standards.
Demonstrate to land managers, regulators and the general public a commitment to responsible 4WDriving.
Be able to participate in 4WD activities in restricted areas where a training certificate is required for access e.g. volunteer activities in National Parks.
Qualify for discounts on vehicle insurance offered by some insurance providers.
Demonstrate a Duty of Care and due diligence in the event of an accident or incident.
Be awarded a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment on successful completion of the assessments. Employers often require their employees to hold this qualification if 4WD vehicle operation is part of their employment.
