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.
