Excellent practical evaluation of own car and advice. Good practical tips and visual demonstrations.

Marie G / 4WD Intro Course

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 / 4WD Intro Course

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.

Henny R

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. FANTASTIC!

Denise O

The practical component made me feel more confident and the theoretical side was good for learning more of the capabilities of my car. Lots of good tips. Would recommend. Practical and clear explanations. Really enjoyed our one-on-one training session and feel confident to start 4W driving!

Ian and Simone K

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 and Taryn M

This course was better than expected. Very enjoyable and informative.

Fred T

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.

Mark M


Really great course, looking forward to your book.

Glenn V

Very practical and solution focused course.

Dennis G

Great confidence builder. Plenty of practice of the skills, introduced in a gradual way. I was doing things at the end of the day that I wouldn’t have been contemplating at the start.

Chris B

Everything was thoroughly explained before being asked to go ahead on the course track, including how and why things may 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. We actually gained even more than expected.  Thank you so much for taking us out at such short notice. We’ll take it slow and hopefully do you proud!

Rowena S

Thanks for a wonderful day Stephen. It was fantastic, no improvement needed.

I learnt things that will help in any number of situations and Stephen’s way of teaching and his patience.
