Land Rover driver training 

We have teamed up with Land Rover to provide a practical driver training course covering driving and safety techniques for people undertaking expeditions, fieldwork or research in remote areas.

  • upcoming training events will be listed here

To help raise the safety and effectiveness of small teams operating in remote areas, the Society has teamed up with Jaguar Land Rover to provide a practical course covering key basic off-road driving and safety techniques including towing and winching. This is a unique opportunity to benefit from Jaguar Land Rover’s expertise and discuss how the vehicles can be used to their full potential in the demanding situations posed by expeditions. Details of the two-day course are available here (PDF).

Who is the training aimed at? 
This course is intended for those organising or involved in research, community or conservation projects overseas. Individuals rather than groups are encouraged to apply as places are strictly limited.

When is the next Land Rover Training course?

Where is the training held?
