4x4 Community Drivers Training Course

I had the pleasure of riding shotgun in a Land Rover Discovery 3 on a informal training course run by the guys at

What an awesome way to give back to the community and congrats guys on a superb and informative training course.

With a little bit of everything from hill descents and on angle driving to the basics of vehicle recovery, the course managed to show the various drivers how much they still have to learn.

Was superbly impressed with a number of vehicles on the course although the Land Rover stood out in front.

It was the only vehicle that they allowed to stop on the hill and then continue on from a standing start whereas the rest did a controlled reverse descent and then up and over with no stops.

This was a course aimed at novices so there was quite a bit of tension but a lot fun fun was had by all.

I also saw a very clever design for a fridge slider by one of the instructors. If your in the market for one I seriously recomend that you check out this one. More info can be found at

All in all a great day.
