PDA 4WD Recreational 4WD Days


What is our Recreational 4WD Training

Embark on a thrilling adventure with our PDA 4WD recreational day! Whether you're dreaming of remote landscapes or just plotting a course through a muddy haven to your cherished campsite or a secret waterfall, our program is your ticket to mastering the art of off-road driving.

Forget learning by trial and error or picking up questionable techniques from random observers. Join us for a day of excitement and education, where we ensure that your journey from point A to point B is not only safe but also loads of fun—although we can't guarantee you won't find yourself stuck in the mud again. Hey, it happens to the best of us!

Our PDA 4WD recreational days are designed to be safe, educational, and downright enjoyable! Here's a sneak peek at what you'll experience

What's Included?

  • Discover the characteristics of 4WD vehicles.

  • Learn the ins and outs of 4WD systems, including gearing and differential locks.

  • Dive into electronic systems and their assistance, featuring ABS, ESC, traction control, hill descent control, and more.

  • Master the art of negotiating various terrains, from rocky landscapes and muddy patches to sandy shores, snowy trails, and water crossings.

  • Get the lowdown on "spotting" other drivers and the when and how of track building for tackling tough obstacles.

  • Identify recovery points and practice safe recoveries using a variety of equipment, such as winches, snatch straps, maxx tracks, and more. Bring your own recovery gear for a personalised touch!

But wait, there's more! We'll also cover trip planning and safety equipment to make your off-road excursions a breeze.

And, at the end of the day.. You will receive your very own certificate of completion.
