4x4 Driver Training

Introductory 4x4 Training

Our course is designed with the novice in mind and we work on the basis that you know little or nothing about off-roading, your vehicle and its available features! We slowly build your confidence levels throughout this action-packed day at our purposely built off-road training 4×4 trail north of Johannesburg. Our 4×4 Training course is a great way for participants to learn the theoretical and practical aspects of off-road driving and enhance any previously learned knowledge.

Our enthusiastic 4×4 instructors will teach you all about those buttons, dials and levers in your 4×4 that you have been curious about, and how to get the most out of your vehicle, safely and responsibly! Our goal is to provide you with the highest quality 4×4 Driver Training in all off-road situations, whilst having fun at the same time!

We believe that once drivers become fully confident in handling their vehicles, they can fully enjoy the true off-road 4×4 lifestyle with minimum impact on the environment and their vehicle, allowing you and your family the chance to experience the fun, family-friendly world of 4×4 off-roading in a safe and responsible manner.

Where do I do my training?

Our 4×4 training course is located near Hartebeespoort Dam at the Hennops Off-road Trail, just far enough out of town to feel like you are in the Bush! Surrounded by the pristine African bush on a wildlife 4×4 trail that boasts Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, Kudu, Impala, black-backed Jackal and a host of other indigenous species, including our famous ‘Zonkies’ Harry and Oscar.

The 4×4 adventure takes us to the heart of the trail, where at our boma styled classroom we have morning coffee or tea. This is where we conduct the theory part of your 4×4 training.  After the theory, we move to the specially designed 4×4 trail that simulates terrain you would typically find throughout Southern Africa. It’s here we teach you to deal with off-road situations that you will encounter on your 4×4 adventures into the great Southern African outdoors!

Recovery 4x4 Training

To drive a vehicle off-road requires an entirely different set of skills to driving on the road. Added to those skills must be included training in the safe and correct means of handling a vehicle recovery. At some point, we are all going to get stuck while we are on our 4×4 off-road adventures! When this happens it’s very important to know how to use all the recovery equipment you have bought to get yourself out of trouble quickly and most importantly of all safely!   For this purpose, SA Adventure has launched a 4×4 vehicle recovery course, the recovery course truly is a step ahead of your regular 4×4 training course. It covers everything from 4×4 recovery techniques, equipment explanation, recovery orientation to simulating scenarios that you could potentially encounter on your travels through the African bush!

There is a misperception that unless you are somewhere in “Deep Dark” Africa, you will not get your vehicle stuck and will not need recovery. Unfortunately, sometimes even a Sunday afternoon outing to your local park with the dogs can result in a stuck 4×4 vehicle that needs recovering! 

Where do I do my training?

The 4×4 recovery course takes place on natural terrain at the Hennops Off-Road Trail. It is important that all occupants of the vehicle are made aware of the risks involved in vehicle recovery, but most of all that the driver is knowledgeable of the position the vehicle is in, the equipment they have to recover it and understands and respects the vehicles and recovery equipment’s limitations and is able to identify the resources that nature has provided for them to leverage off of and use to their advantage! People often have difficulty understanding what 4×4 recovery gear is important and how each item or tool is used. This course will also help you to evaluate which tools and accessories are truly a must-have and will ensure that you are comfortable with each item or tool and its functionality. When recovering your vehicle, safety comes first, we teach you to safely recover your vehicle from real situations and that theory, once understood, can be used practically to help you get out of any tricky or sticky situation!

The 4×4 Course Includes the Following Subjects:

  • Pulling a stuck vehicle out both with a Kinetic and Static recovery strap
  • How to correctly rig a recovery strap and winch cable
  • Towing someone in an off-road setting
  • Pulling/Winching yourself and other vehicles out
  • Hi-Lift and air jacking
  • Self-recovery from sand and mud using sand tracks
  • Tyre repair
  • and much more
  • It is recommended that an SA Adventure Introductory 4×4 Training Course be completed before undertaking this Recovery Course, as this will give you the basic off-road understanding of your 4×4’s off-road capabilities.
