1 Day Refresher 4WD Driver Training


Note: this is a non-accredited course that does not include a formal assessment of competency. For accredited training in the relevant units of competency, please go to Accredited training.

If you have previously completed your training with us either at the Introductory or Advanced Level and would like a refresher on the 4WD skills and techniques, or perhaps you have changed vehicles now and have one that has considerable more technology that you would like to learn about, then our one day refresher course is for you.

All training is conducted at our magnificent 4WD training centre just outside Braidwood, now recognized as one of the best if Australia. Arrive by 8.30 am or come down the day before and use our camp site, or bunk house accommodation for the small fee of $25. Spend the whole day learning what all the dials and gadgets really do. We will cover off the new 4WD skills we have picked up too to help you travel safer and have more fun, along with the latest safety guidelines on vehicle recovery. The day will conclude at approximately 4.30pm and you can either camp or stay with us or head off on your next adventure.

The fee is $350 and covers up to two drivers in your vehicle. This is a non accredited course, but talk to us about our accredited courses if you need this for a discount on your insurance, we may be able to slot you into one of our accredited courses.
