Price for 1 participant

This wonderful half day off road experience in in Leicestershire gives you the chance to learn to drive a 4x4 around a challenging, fun, and fairly muddy driving course! 4x4 driving is a totally different type of driving to the driving you do on-road, and with this half day introduction you'll learn the tricks of 4x4 driving under the tuition of a qualified 4x4 driving instructor. 

Your driving experience takes place on a purpose-built driving course at Rockingham Castle. The driving centre boasts over 250 acres of land as well as a 75 acre disused quarry, with four separate driving tracks to challenge off road drivers of all abilities. Your driving day begins with a briefing to cover safety issues and driving techniques, and introduce you to the powerful 4x4 vehicles you'll be driving. After this, it's time to head out onto the off road course! After your instructor gives you a quick driving demo, it's your turn to take the wheel and see what these marvellous machines can do! You'll have plenty of drive time to really get to grips with the vehicle, while the vehicle gets to grips with the challenging course! Take on the varied terrain and put your skills to the test as you tackle steep climbs and descents, river crossings and ditches, and all kinds of natural obstacles, with your instructor beside you throughout to offer tuition. 

This is a fantastically enjoyable half day 4x4 experience, and a perfect gift for anyone who wants to find out just what these fabulous 4x4s are really capable of!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your Half day Off Road Driving experience will begin when you meet your instructor for the day and discuss the plan for the day over coffee. Once briefed up it's time for a safety brief and introduction to the vehicle you will be mastering, before the instructor will show how it is done with a demo drive. Then, with all of the knowledge and a burning desire to show you can do it - it's over to you to practice what the instructor made look easy...including tackling hills, climbs, descents, muddy mounds, ruts, river crossings and even more technical sections! A fantastically enjoyable full day 4x4 experience.

Question: We hold a Luxembourg driving licence, but both previously had UK licence for over 20 years. Can we take part in the off road driving in Leicester?

I thoroughly enjoyed my half day experience. The instructor was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The first decent was a little daunting but after that I couldn't wait to get to the next challenge. Highly recommended.

i bought it for a present for my fiance as he went on the same course for 1 hour last year and loved it so i thought i would get him the half a day one, he was even more stunned and would recommend it to anyone, and already has told everyone he knows to go and do it! :)

Half Day Off Road Driving in Rockingham Castle

I was bought the experience as a gift, and what an experience it was! Starting with a very professional but down to earth briefing, it only got better. My instructor provided a very good demonstration which he kept very short sweet. Then I took over the driving. The advice and instructions were given as required- it was like being drip fed but was definitely not obtrusive. The only down side was when the session came to an end. The day was clear and bright, and I will be booking a return visit, but not until the weather gets messy!

I thoroughly enjoyed my half day experience. The instructor was fantastic, really friendly and knowledgable both about the terrain and the vehicle. He went over the basic skills then when we had mastered this went off to challenge some if the more technical bits. This was great fun as the rain started to fall making everything that little bit more slippery. I couldn't recommend this experience highly enough. I've already booked another!

Had a great morning. It was well worth paying the extra for the second person. The instructor (Luke) was very informative and made the whole experience fun for both of us. Would do this again and would highly recommend it. BRILLIANT!
