Introductory driver training
Recreational 4WD driving and recovery training-We will put you on the right track!
You have just purchased your first 4WD and would like to know how to get the best from it in safety and to really understand what you need to know and to have for your outback travel. What recovery equipment do you need and more importanly how do you use it safely without damaging your 4WD or yourself in the process. What does all this 4WD technology do for me and when and where do I use it? What's the difference between a snatch strap and a winch extension strap? How do I fitout my 4WD as it's really confusing to try and pick what I really need from all the information available.
I am not sure where to start and I need an independant 4WD professional to help me make sense of it all!
