Off Road Driver Training

4x4 Off-Road Driver Training

Lantra Awards Approved TrainingAn accredited Lantra Awards Training Provider, we provide 4x4 off-road driver training to the highest standards to suit people of all abilities and experience, and for all purposes.  The Lantra Awards Off Road Vehicle Operating (4x4) qualification is nationally recognised, recommended by the HSE, and a requirement within many companies and industries.


We can also help if you need training in more extreme off-road driving.

Our instructors trained Charlie Boorman and the production crew of The Long Way Down, the televised off-road adventure with Ewan MacGregor back in 2007, and have since prepared many other drivers for their own challenging overland expeditions in Africa and Australia.

Off-road driving course options

Lantra Awards Off Road Vehicle Operating (4x4)

  • Duration:

1 or 2 days

  • Capacity:

3 drivers

2 drivers per course is recommended if they have no prior off-road experience. Lantra courses are suitable for everyone who has cause to drive off-road as part of their work duties, or otherwise wants to become properly qualified in off-road driving.

These courses provide delegates with the necessary skills to drive off-road in a way that looks after the people in the vehicle, the vehicle itself and the ground driven on. Lantra changed the course and qualification structure in 2017, enabling us to provide the most suitable level of training and assessment to drivers and companies whatever their requirement.

There are now 2 levels of training, assessment and qualification available, each with a combination of theory and practical training:

Extreme Patrol1. Principles of off road vehicle operating


This 1-day course is appropriate for those who only need to drive on gentle terrain, such as established tracks and fairly level fields. The assessment and qualification restricts drivers to such modest terrain only.

2. Operating vehicles in off road adverse conditions

Covering all the above, plus:

This 2-day course equips drivers for the full range of off road hazards and terrain that can be safely negotiated in an unmodified 4x4 vehicle, making it ideal for anyone that may need to venture off road away from established, firm tracks; or even using established dirt tracks in wet and slippery conditions.

Assessment & Qualification

Both courses conclude with a thorough assessment of each candidate’s ability to safely judge off-road terrain and maintain full control of the vehicle in a variety of situations, to the appropriate course level. Successful completion results in a Lantra Awards certificate and Skills Card; with presentation of the Skills Card often being required by major companies before allowing contractors to drive on site.

Refresher training is recommended within 3 - 5 years.

Discovery at Dusk4x4 Professional Competence

  • Duration:

1 day

  • Capacity:

2 drivers

This is a simplified option to the Lantra Awards courses above, and is suitable for company drivers and contractors who use 4x4 vehicles on moderate terrain.

The driving principles are the same as for our Lantra Awards courses, to equip participants with the skills to remain safe whilst also avoiding damage to vehicles or the ground driven on.

Following an initial theory session to introduce the basics of safe off-road driving, emphasis is on practical skills and covers many of the same techniques as the Lantra Awards Off Road Vehicle Operating (4x4) courses above; albeit in a compressed fashion.

Being our own course, we are able to tailor the training content to your exact requirements for utmost relevance.

Courses culminate in a practical assessment of each driver, supported by a written appraisal. Successful participants receive a certificate of competence, valid for 3 years, plus detailed Course Notes to support the training.
