XDrive 4WD Course Reviews 2020

Hello Stephen, Thank you so much for everything on Thursday.

Although it did push me out of my comfort zone I thoroughly enjoyed it, and so did Clive. He was very surprised that there was so much more to 4 wheel driving than just flicking over a switch.

The adrenaline was still going when we left you and we ended up going left instead of right but soon realized our error, did a u turn and came back down the mountain without getting lost:) My major disappointment is that I completely forgot to take photos. Nobody will ever believe that we came down that track and then back up one that was equally challenging. Lol!

We do have the certificates that you sent so that is our proof so thank you also for that. We are now in Maroochydore having a bit of r and r for a few days.
If any of our friends are interested in that course we will definitely recommend you.

Great Course, good to learn the “why” of everything. I gained confidence when I wasn’t sure I would actually feel confident to participate, but I did. Could have done with a bit more shade in the morning. Enjoyed the day.

The knowledge and experience and Stephen’s ability to transfer his knowledge to the participants so they understood the capability of our vehicle. I don’t think this course could be improved. It was tailored to our experience, needs and vehicle.

There is heaps of info online BUT from XDrive and Stephen you have information coming from an authority

Glenn V

Stephen had an excellent knowledge of my vehicle. I’d like to repeat the practical exercises, the rain was an issue. (The tracks used didn’t replicate what I’ve encountered in reality).

John L

I really enjoyed this course and have no constructive criticism. Great practical real-world situations and demonstrations of best strategies to deal with these.

Kye & Taryn M

Emphasis on the smaller but underrated facts made us both appreciate the knowledge and experience that Stephen has. The day was very enjoyable and we both learned a lot.
