Four Wheel Drive and Recovery Course

The Four Wheel drive and recovery course has been designed for those who have already completed the basic 4x4 course. This will allow you time to put into practice previous training and then get to know your recovery equipment in a very relaxed bush setting. The training group is capped at 4 training vehicles, allowing for plenty of interaction and learning time with your instructor. This course is broken down into hands on, practical segments throughout the day that will assist you in preparing for your future four wheel drive endeavors in a fun and relaxed environment while developing your "skills to choose your own adventure".

Please note: The course is $350.00 per vehicle and a maximum two persons.

Meeting Place: Gidgegannup Bakery 1/2125 Toodyay Road, Perth, Western Australia. There is a location map under the contact tab.
