This group class is limited to 12 students insuring the most effective instructor-to-student ratio.
Providing a full day of foundation 4WD training, our 101 Class is structured for those new to driving off-road. (Or even those just looking for a quick refresher!) While adhering to the principles of Tread Lightly, you will learn the Five Systems Method of operating a four-wheel-drive vehicle, as well as the Five Steps to Negotiating an Obstacle. You will become familiar with the Hi-Lift Jack and winching, and the necessary equipment needed for safe recovery.
While all of our locations are designed and built with the same consistency of obstacle and terrain they do differ. The Virginia Course in particular has many densely-wooded trails that can be a challenge for some full-size SUV’s and trucks; therefore, students using these vehicles are advised to pay close attention to their instructor and their vehicle’s position while on-course.
