Why You Need Training 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 vehicles are driven by employees who have received the appropriate training in their safe use. If you are self-employed, the regulations still apply.

But more importantly, as with any driving you need to make sure you are properly trained for your own safety and to help avoid accidents and potential injuries. 

Who is this suitable for?:  We offer a range of courses for all those operating an off-road vehicle. Any person who will be required to operate a 4x4 vehicle in an off road environment. All learners must be able to demonstrate that they are competent in driving normal vehicles in a road situation and hold a current driving licence.
