Training Courses

The Southern Tablelands Four Wheel Drive Club is devoted to providing the best driver training possible. The club's driver training team provide a range of courses throughout the year to meet the Club's growing membership and training requirements.

Partners and family members are encouraged  to undertake training courses offered from time to time. To maintain a high standard of training the ratio of students to instructors is kept very low, and training capacity and the number of training places available is therefore limited.



The current list of courses available, which are expanded on in detail in the Driver Training Policy document located under the Training menu tab, are as follows:

Mandatory Training

  • Basic driver training (mandatory for Grade 3 and above trips)
  • Very difficult terrain and advanced recovery (mandatory for Grade 5 trips)
