MJOC DRIVER TRAINING PROGRAM

Driver Training and Trip Participation

For the safety and enjoyment of all participants the club requires all drivers to be at a minimum training and skill standard on all 4×4 trips. Except for our Easy rated trips, drivers must have completed the MJOC Basic Driver Training or show documentary proof of completion of a similar approved course.

Our MJOC Basic Driver Training is Jeep specific and includes club rules and procedures, driver skills, correct vehicle recovery process, convoy procedure, communications, and vehicle control. Members can also attend in another make and partners are also encouraged to participate.

If you have not completed these requirements you will not be able to participate as a driver on trips other than Easy rating.

Even experienced drivers will benefit from our course. Participants must be current members to attend any training course.

Vehicle Requirements

To attend Basic Driver Training you must have a dual range 4×4 system. Single range Jeep models can only attend easy trips.

You do not need to have a modified vehicle, in fact you will learn more driving skills and have a better training experience if your vehicle is stock standard. Vehicles must be roadworthy and well maintained.

All vehicles attending training or trips must have both front and rear recovery points. Factory installed recovery points/ hooks are quite suitable for regular four wheel driving. If you are not sure, talk to our Driver Training team who can check what your vehicle is equipped with.

IMPORTANT – 2011 to current WK2 Grand Cherokee vehicles must have a front recovery hook fitted – they are not fitted to this model from the factory. Check out our article on this issue here.
