A great experience

Really enjoyed our half day at Whitecliffe - wished we'd gone for the full day instead!


Overall a very enjoyable and informative morning, although due to the excessively hot weather there was very little water/mud. The administration prior to the event was very good and efficient.


This was an excellent experience for someone who is not normally into 4X4 driving. The course was well constructed, well briefed on and the actual driving experience greatly benefited from having the Instructor there with you. The actual driving arena within the disused quarry was good and certainly tested our ability. Highly recommended for those wanting a good grounding in 4X4 driving. I even wrote up an article enthusing about it for our local village magazine.


the way the course was run was excellent with very attentive instruction from Bryn . he gave me exactly what I wanted i.e. an introduction to 4 x 4 driving . at the start of the course I couldnt believe what I was expected to do and was encouraged to over come doubts and open up a whole new world of motoring.


Fantastic day the 3 instructors where excellent very informative with a beautiful setting in the heart of the forest of dean :)
