Training Testimonials

Julie from Launceston

Thoroughly enjoyable day in every aspect. Provided really great experiences for novices and we would not have attempted this without your support and guidance. Appreciate the level of knowledge of the vehicles, given our vehicle had street tyres, it was good to know it was capable of performing in the the environments. Felt reassured and confident with Mark's knowledge and expertise. Fabulous all round really!!

Paul from Franklin

Great course for new 4wd owners, l got more out of it than I expected, great day out....... see you in the near future on one of you next 4wd tagalongs.

Viv from Launceston

I found the beginners training day very informative, with relevant information to better understand how the vehicle drives and handles in off-road conditions, that was in a controlled environment. Mark was extremely patient with everyone and no question was a stupid question. I do feel it was only the tip of the 4x4 driving Iceberg and I’m extremely keen for more knowledge and hands on training.

Henrietta from Neika

Really good day. I would like more of the same to further my skills in my vehicle. Mark is a clear calm patient teacher. I felt able to ask questions when in doubt.    

Rob from Mt Hicks

Great explanations re tyre pressures and driving conditions, different makes of 4x4s. Mark was very approachable to ask any question, really relevant anecdotes and relevant teaching to the level of participants....... Great introduction to how capable 4WDs are. Bring on the next training day(s)! 👍👍 

Kim from Crabtree

Thanks Mark - I had a ball on your recent Girls Only Day. Your presentation was clear with just the right amount technicality to help me understand how a 4WD works - in particular tyres, diffs and traction control. The confidence I gained from extracting your vehicle from a sandy bog was immense - the power of knowledge!  I thoroughly enjoyed myself and have found a confidence in 4 wheel driving I did not previously have. The course is highly recommended.  Your passion is inspiring - you have flipped a switch in my brain - yes I can!  Thank you.   

Tameeka from Launceston

Cannot recommend the girls only day more! Was such an awesome and informative day! Mark is a great teacher and has a wealth of knowledge!
