Land Rover driver training 

The Society has teamed up with our corporate benefactors Land Rover to provide a practical driver training course covering driving and safety techniques for people undertaking expeditions, fieldwork or research in remote areas.

  • Thursday 12 & Friday 13 May 2016

Delegates will benefit from Land Rover's expertise to learn how vehicles can be used to full potential in demanding situations.

Individuals rather than groups are encouraged to apply as places are limited. 

Cost: £228 (incl. VAT) - Retail value normally £790
Eastnor Castle, Herefordshire
Booking: Please download a booking form (PDF) and provide as many details as possible. As course numbers are limited priority will be given to those departing on remote and challenging expeditions.

Course feedback:
"Most enjoyable, informative and practical course, providing a 'no nonsense' approach to both planning and developing safe off-road driving skills." (M.Kelly, 2010)

"Not only am I now ready for expedition off road driving but I am also better prepared for driving every day. The two days instilled a wealth of important principles - clearly explained by instructors who ensured they were followed again and again" (R.Shovelton, 2010)

Land Rover Bursary
If you are planning an expedition and would like to receive over £15,000 and an expedition-ready Land Rover, apply for the Land Rover Bursary.
