Low Risk 4WD Training Course – One Day

CDTA's Low Risk 4WD Training Course is a one-day program tailored for individuals who utilize 4WD vehicles for work and are committed to enhancing 4WD safety. The course blends key aspects from our one-day Low Risk Driving Course with basic 4WD knowledge and skills. While this course can be conducted at your workplace, access to a suitable 4WD area nearby is necessary.

Sessions include an on-road driving component as well as off-road driving on bush tracks and in more challenging environments. This course does not include vehicle recovery techniques requiring specialist equipment such as recovery straps or winches.
