Hi there.
I'm relatively new to 4x4 and wanting to get a few more tips/skills under the belt.
Is it worth looking into a day course or something along those lines? If so any in particular?

Cheers legends.

Many people suggest doing a 4x4 training course as it will help with the basic's of understanding your vehicle and how it reacts in certain situations , also will teach you how to control the vehicle on differing terrains and situations along with safe basic recovery techniques and how to apply them in real life .

One of the best ways to learn is to go on trips with experienced members. Don't be afraid to ask questions, or for help if the need arises as learning from experience is one of the best ways imo.

Check out the vic trip page for trips and join in where you can.
@Spooner is running a snow trip soon, this could be one for you to get on if time frame suits.

As for training courses in vic not sure myself but am sure a few vics will be able to point you in the right direction.

Good luck.

Your other option is a tag a long tour... You get the experienced hand leading you, you will have a group of like minded individuals around you to give advice and you get to learn what you and your vehicle are capable of

Thanks heaps for the reply guys.

Going out with other experienced drivers would definitely be a great option for sure! I'm all ears and like to learn things properly, so any advice I'll take on board.

I'm gradually getting the truck kitted up and keen as to get out and about. As is my fiancé and little bloke (he's only 13months but I'll say he's keen ha)

Might look at the trips you mentioned that are coming up, and see if we can get along to one.

The vic annual meet in november would be a great one to attend, plenty of experienced folk going with trips for all experience levels on offer.
Would be a great way to meet forum members as the social aspect of the meets is also fantastic.

Another option is to look into your local 4wd club. The club I'm in (Toyota landcruiser club darwin) offers free driver training courses to members. The interstate tlcclubs offer very professional training (cost a packet too) most of them make you do the training before going on their trips.

Sure go do the course, ppl that have been to one after driving in the bush for years always say they learn something new from courses..Always KEEP AN OPEN MIND...

Good luck

Awesome. The Vic meet could be great for sure. Do you know where it is this year?

If I was to look at one of the courses is there any in particular that people recommend? I've seen there's a few around so would be good to pick one people got a bit out of and enjoyed at the same time.
