OFF ROAD 4X4
We are an accredited trainer specialising in the provision of qualified 4 x 4 offroad tuition for all from the enthusiastic novice to the experienced professional.
The 60 acre site offers an excellent variety of regularly encountered terrain, as well as more challenging environments such as deep water and ruts. Set on light sandy soil with pockets of clay the diverse offroad course provides all the relevant challenges such as ascent and descent control, deep water negotiation, traction optimisation, cross axel issues and skid avoidance.
Use our 4x4 course all day (9.00 - 4.00) for just £30. (We'll tow you out the first time for free too but please make sure you've got a tow hook!) Join us on our facebook page and share your photos and stories www.facebook.com/wildtracks4x4

Recreational and leisure driving courses
Whether you regularly use your 4 x 4 off road, whether you've never ventured far from the tarmac, or whether you are still thinking about getting a 4 x 4, a day on the WildTracks off road course will expand your knowledge and give you greater driving pleasure on and off road. Our sympathetic teachers will build and pace the day to suit you and your lesson will include opportunities to:
- learn what 4 x 4s are capable of in a safe and spacious environment
- learn what manoeuvres and conditions should be avoided
- test your newly acquired skills in your own time
- discover the varied course to the full
- learn lots of practical tips
- explore vehicle maintenance and safety checks
- enjoy yourself
A 4 x 4 lesson for someone special
Giving someone close to you a 4 x 4 lesson shows you:
- care about their safety
- want them to get the best from their vehicle
- have fun and gain confidence
- want to give them a day to remember
P.S. you don't have to own or drive a 4 x 4 to benefit from a 4 x 4 off road lesson as it will raise awareness of safety issues and vehicle limitations on road too.

"I would like to express my thanks for a great day out. My husband had his 40th birthday driving in a Range Rover all day and he had a great time, and so did my son and I as we sat in the back. I never knew Range Rovers could do so much. Once again thank you for a most enjoyable day and one to remember."
We also offer 4x4 taster experiences which are suitable for anyone who wants to have some fun splashing around the off road course. The experiences are not with a qualified instructor and are therefore probably not sufficiently challenging for those with off road driving experience.

Business and professional courses
Training is a legal requirement if you drive off-road for business purposes. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) require employers to provide adequate training, and to ensure that 4x4s are driven only by employees who have received the appropriate training in their safe use. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.
Training improves driver safety, so reducing the likelihood of vehicle damage, subsequent costs and consequent downtime.
