Private Northumberland 4x4 Driving Experience

Test the capabilities of a big, bad burly off road vehicle - as well as your own driving skills - with this off road 4x4 driving experience at an acclaimed off road driving course in Northumberland.

This Northumberland off road 4x4 driving experience is perfect for anyone who wants to try a totally different kind of driving. Forget tarmac and concrete, this is all about dirt tracks, mud and puddles, as you learn to navigate a lightweight but powerful 4x4 around a fantastic and challenging off road driving course.

If you've had some 4x4 driving experience before, you probably want to try it again, and this driving day will allow you to build on your existing experience - but if you've never sat behind the wheel of one of these bad boys before, your instructor will make sure you have a good handle on the basics before you head out on the track. This 4x4 experience will be tailored to match your abilities so you can be sure that you'll get out of the vehicle with more skills and confidence than when you got in! You'll have an instructor sitting beside you throughout the experience, so you'll have plenty of guidance and support to help you climb those steep and slippery hills, drop down equally steep and slippery descents, power through challenging water canyons, and rumble over some superb camber portions of the course that would easily tip a lesser vehicle! This kind of driving is totally different to the sort you do on regular roads, so prepare for a great challenge, and an even better sense of achievement when you master control of the vehicle, and conquer those natural obstacles that were just made to test the 4x4s!

For petrol heads and adventurous souls, this off road 4x4 driving experience in Northumberland is the perfect day out. If you're searching for a great gift for someone who wants to take their driving to new levels (and muddy depths), this is the one for you!

Birthday gift

I was given the 4x4 experience as my birthday gift. When we arrived at the venue the young lady was very helpful and pleasant. I was introduced to my guide Ian who was very good and explained all of the instructions very clearly. I was on the track for the whole hour and had the time of my life. It was very exciting and challenging. I am a lady who is almost 70yrs. So if you are thinking about doing this, just do it.

My partner got so much fun and helpful tips out of this experience he's said it was the best driving fun he's ever had. He spent almost all the hour long going thru amazing challenges but also learning so much. Course is set in lovely countryside. The staff at the centre are so friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make the chosen event a thrill for you. Most definitely recommend this activity for the sheer fun, adrenalin rush, helpful tips and the expert support from staff driver.

Totally different to what I expected, but an absolutely fabulous experience. The instructor was excellent and gave me a lot of confidence. Well worth the money and a marvellous way to mark my 60th birthday.
