Off-Road Training for 4×4 & ATV Drivers and Quad Bike Riders in the South West

From our 4×4 training head office near Honiton in Devon, as well as other sites around the West Country, we provide Lantra certified Off-Road Training courses for 4×4 drivers in the South West, as well as our on and off-road 4×4 familiarisation and H&S compliance course. Lantra courses are recognised throughout industry and by government and landowners, and are ideal for contractors working on heritage or protected sites, major building projects and government owned land and forestry areas.

As always with our training – the category B driving courses we offer are run by fully qualified DVSA Approved Driving Instructors and accredited by LANTRA (for the off-road courses) or Beyond Driving (for the on-road defensive driving and vehicle handling courses).

Our Devon 4×4 venue is undoubtedly the best off-road training venue in the South West of England. With conference facilities and fully equipped training rooms inside, and outside we have areas suitable for testing the capabilities of all types of vehicles from AWD crossovers and 4×4 vans to fully equipped 4×4 trucks. With access to a wide range of modern vehicles, and the ability to take clients machines around areas without damaging them, we are extremely proud of our head office venue. 2 day courses from £400+VAT/candidate (based on 3 candidates), and 1 day experienced operator assessment and refresher training from £220+VAT/candidate.

We can provide our on road courses from client’s workplaces, or from one of our sites across the South West. With recognised certification, our courses are designed by some of the most experienced professional 4×4 driver trainers in the UK. Courses available for up to three drivers per day and from £180+VAT/candidate.

We have excellent vehicles and trailers for a wide range of trailer handling training, and are capable of providing appropriate training for B+E combinations for commercial operators in civil engineering, construction, utilities and other sectors, both on and off the road. We also run B+E trailer test training in a smaller modern 4×4, with extremely well qualified and experienced professional driver trainers. We run the Devon tests from the Exeter test centre in Marsh Barton, with two day courses for two candidates starting from £320+VAT/candidate, and single occupancy for two days for £585+VAT (each candidate will need to add the DVSA test fee of £115 to these costs). Training is run in conjunction with Devon 4×4 Training’s Exeter trailer trainers.

Our trainers have experience of commercial, military and recovery winching operations across the world. Operating to the highest standards, we have the vehicles and equipment available to us to cover both vehicle mounted and hand-winches, as well as the ability to run courses with client’s equipment for familiarisation purposes. Dedicated vehicle and self recovery courses are also available. Courses can be run with up to four candidates. 2 day novice courses from £400+VAT/candidate and 1 day experienced operator courses from £220+VAT/candidate.

We can run the Lantra All-Terrain Vehicle training courses across the whole of the south west, either at one of our sites or at your venue, providing machines for the training, or using the ATVs your operators are provided with. Costs vary depending upon venue and machine hire, starting from £275+VAT/candidate for a 2 person novice operator training day, and £160+VAT/candidate for a 4 person assessment and refresher 1 day course.

Along with the Lantra off-road driving courses, we are also able to provide RoSPA 4×4 and ATV certification in Devon and throughout the South West.

We will always adapt the course to your requirements and those of your operators. As we often run training from clients’ venues, using your machines, vehicles and equipment, this means that we can cover their specific capabilities and limitations, as well as those of the equipment you may load onto them and any trailed equipment you require. From rough terrain access to winter gritting and snowplough use, we have trained operators on mountains and in car parks, with candidates from agricultural backgrounds to academics, for self-employed contractors to government organisations.

Costs for us to train at your workplace start from £400/day, with certification costs of £35/candidate. If you have specific requirements for the training, large numbers of candidates, or require machine or venue hire, please contact us to discuss options.

We provide training to a variety of customers across the UK, if there is any information you need, or if you would like us to design a training proposal for you, just get in touch:
