Read what our Perth four-wheel drive course attendees have to say.

See what some of our four-wheel drive training course participants from Perth – Western Australia, had to say about senior four-wheel drive instructor-trainer Glynn Williams and the many different available 4WD courses that Western Wilderness 4WD & Survival Training has to offer.

I took the course having not been off road and felt comfortable from the start. Glynn walked everyone through the theory and then explained how this works for everyone's car specifically. The all-day bush and sand course was a great day and I definitely learnt how to drive in various terrain, how to utilise the abilities of the car and enjoy it. With the sand driving, you learn more than what you read online about dropping the pressures to understand what your looking to achieve and get the perfect level - but also how to best recover.
I will definitely be back to complete the recovery course and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone - its a small cost to learn the good way of doing things
Glynn was a great instructor which made the experience both fun and enjoyable.

The Bush and Sand Course was great value for money and very informative. We had an excellent day out with Glynn who was incredibly helpful and experienced. All round we began the day knowing next to nothing and left the day feeling fully confident in 4WDing in these terrains, and also in using our gear. Couldn't recommend it enough.

The Bush and Sand course was fantastically run and was absolutely worth it! Glynn is incredibly knowledgeable and a great teacher, and I feel both informed and confident after having spent the day driving with him.

We had a fantastic day putting our 4x4's through their paces. The mix of driving in both bush and sand conditions has given me a lot more confidence to take the car places I wouldn't have considered before. Glynn's knowledge and experience was evident as he took three novices to confident drivers in varying conditions. I'd highly recommend Western Wilderness 4WD to anyone who wants to learn the basics, or hone their off-road skills.

Completed the Bush and Sand Course on the rainiest day of the year with Western Wilderness.
It was awesome!!! Glynn is the most knowledgeable and hardest working Expert Guru of 4wd techniques.
The knowledge and skills learnt on the day were put to good use in the mud and sand, all participants left with large grins on their faces.
I look forward to checking out some more courses with western Wilderness and look forward to a few more dad jokes from Glynn.

We both enjoyed the course very much, Glynn was very good and the inclement weather only added to the fun. We learnt a lot and gained real confidence in the car, it was great to do it together so that later on when we are on the road together we have a similar idea of what the car can do and how we should do it.

What an outstanding day of four wheel drive instruction. Glynn is an exceptional teacher and his knowledge of four wheel drive theory, information about every vehicle and the really warm hearted and positive way that he responds to all participants made this bush and sand course quite superb. The three of us attended with very little understanding of four wheel driving and we left with newfound confidence and excitement about the future possibilities of four wheel drive excursions and holidays. If you want to find out more about your vehicle and it and your capabilities, then this course is a must. We now have a real passion for getting out in the bush and sand to experience much more of our amazing country.
Thank you so much, Glynn, we will be returning for further training in the future.

Recently did the Bush & Sand 4wd course with Glynn. Fantastic day! Glynn’s enthusiasm and passion made this extremely enlightening and valuable training day fun and enjoyable. We booked this course at the beginning of a 3 week holiday to the Pilbara. The skills and knowledge attained from the course gave us the ability and confidence to safely venture on numerous 4wd only tracks. We were able to see and explore many places we would have previously been reluctant to travel. We could not rate the course more highly. Thank you Glynn!

We recently completed the Bush & Sand course and highly recommend it to anyone looking to get the best out of their 4WD.
As first time 4WD owners, we left the course with complete confidence in our vehicle and understanding how it performs in both bush and sand terrain.
Glynn was amazing and passed on his extensive knowledge with passion and enthusiasm.
Looking forward to hitting the tracks and practicing what we learnt.

Having just bought a 4x4 for the first time I was keen to get out and explore WA. However I was very aware that I was the A-typical "all the gear and no idea" candidate who you'd find bogged and in trouble on any given beach/track across Australia. After a recommendation from a friend I booked up and very glad I did. Glynn talked us through every part of the process as to how to stay safe and perform well on the sand. The information and tips were invaluable and I left feeling confident with both my vehicles and my own ability to hit the beach. Great course, personally tailored to your vehicle. 10/10.

We had a great time with Western Wilderness and went from total novices to being comfortable with off road driving in a fun and engaging environment. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to get into 4wding or even experienced drivers wanting to develop their technical knowledge.

I had a fantastic time on the bush and sand course. Glynn was a great instructor, where his many years of experience shone through not just in his technical knowledge, but also in his ability to facilitate the course and communicate his knowledge simply and effectively.
I began the course with very little experience and have walked away with the confidence in my ability to handle my 4WD appropriately in a variety of conditions. Highly recommended.

Thanks Glynn for a terrific day on the Bush and Sand course. As a complete novice we finished the day full of confidence in ourselves and our 4WD. Glynn is able to transfer his extensive knowledge simply and effectively balanced with plenty of humor along the way.

I arrived at the meeting point in the morning not really knowing what to expect from the day and not really knowing my 4WD and what it can do. We spent the first half of the day in the woods and bush. The conditions were slippery after recent rain so I thought this was going to be a challenge. We started off on the gravel roads and learn how to safely negotiate these conditions going uphill and downhill, through deep pools of water that had developed, gained an understanding of what to look for when crossing water and when to look for other options. Using the manual function in the gears was a whole new concept for me and greatly improved my management of the car in the conditions. We played around with different setups in the high v’s low range which was very interesting and fun at the same time. Who knew there were more than one way to get up a hill 😊
After lunch we spent the afternoon getting to know our 4WD’s in the deep sand tracks to the north of Wanneroo. We played around with the different tyre pressures, understanding the reasoning for each and using the gears as we had learned in the morning session. Glynn managed to bog his car on purpose and we worked through the steps required to get it out which was interesting to all.

Major things I learnt that I didn’t know –
• Manual gearing gives you much greater control than the automatic drive option
• Optimum tyre pressures for driving on sand for my vehicle
• How to get out if you get bogged deep in sand
• How to use a deflator and compressor
• The recovery points on my new car are not actually recovery points, just tie down points when on the boat

Glynn was great company throughout the day and his life experiences were very interesting to hear about. His sense of humour was refreshing and his attention to detail was second to none.

Glynn is an excellent teacher and really knows his stuff I can’t recommend this course enough.
If you want to learn about 4 wheel driving and have fun in the process, Glynn from Western Wilderness 4WD is the man you need.
Thanks again

Hi Teresa and Glynn
I’d Like to thank you both for providing me with such a welcoming and informative experience on the Bush and sand course.
I’m especially appreciative for Glynn’s ability to embrace all of my mistakes and lack of knowledge and turn them into a positive moment for learning. Glynn’s approach to safety through all aspects of four wheel driving and his knowledge that LESS IS MORE provided a solid new understanding and contrast to my long-held beliefs about 4x4 Driving
I highly recommend anyone interested in four-wheel driving that has any level of experience spend a day with Glynn. I’ll be recommending Western Wilderness to everyone I know.

Thanks, Glynn, for an incredible day! We learnt so much!
We booked the Bush and Sand Course and had the most amazing time!
When we started the day we were pretty insecure how to use and treat our 4WD the right way. Already after a few hours my partner and I felt much more confident and we left the course with such a good feeling and trust in our car. We can’t wait to go on our next trip to practice what we learnt.
Glynn has an amazing knowledge and is happy to share it in a very interesting and patient way.
Thanks again!😀 Highly recommended!!!

Glynn is a brilliant trainer who shares his vast knowledge and enthusiasm for 4WDing freely.
The Bush and Sand course gave us an understanding of the mechanics of 4WDing and a thorough knowledge of and confidence in our own vehicle.
The course was really enjoyable and the best value we've come across for ages. We will definitely be back in Winter for a 'mud" course.
We cannot recommend Glynn and Western Wilderness highly enough for 4WDing training.

My husband and I had a great day yesterday with Glynn on the bush & sand course.
We learnt so much about our car, it’s capabilities and ours too! Glynn covered everything we need to know to get started on our 4x4 adventures.
He’s patient, knowledgeable and professional.
We were a group of 3 cars and we all got 1:1 training.
Such a fun day and well worth the $$. Glynn’s a champion. Loved it and would highly recommend.
