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.
