WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 4x4 TRAINING

 

                            4×4 Familiarisation Training & 4x4 Professional Training

Accredited 4×4 familiarisation courses for utility companies preparing drivers for the floods, snow, ice and adverse driving conditions they will face during the winter. Also, our accredited off-road 4×4 driving professional user’s course is designed for all drivers who need to use their vehicles in off-road situations at work. Many 4x4s are also fitted with winches for self-recovery or to extend their usefulness to the extraction of materials such as wood and animals.

 

The training aids clients to comply with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations and gives their 4×4 operators the knowledge required when assessing whether to drive in floods, snow and ice conditions. 

 

Focusing on risk awareness for drivers using their vehicles on-road is essential, especially in adverse weather conditions, due to the increased risk presented by the conditions, the characteristics of 4×4 capable vehicles and third parties also using the road network. 

 

For the purpose of off-road driving, the accredited 4×4 training goes above and beyond this requirement and is designed to prepare drivers for using their vehicles in a wide variety of terrain.
