Driving over the logs was a bit full on for a first timer. Some of the best aspects of the training was hill descent. Gained a good fundamental vehicle knowledge.  Ben 2018

Everything was thoroughly explained and why it might go wrong, as well as alternatives to do the same thing in a different scenario. The course was absolutely excellent. We couldn’t ask for more – actually gained even more than expected.
