We will ensure you learn how to get the best from your vehicle and enhance your driving skills to maximise your fun and enjoyment from your MJOC experience.

MJOC Basic Driver Training course is designed to ensure all drivers have a minimum competency of driving and vehicle control and recovery skills in 4WD terrain. 

The course encompasses aspects of driver and vehicle requirements to enable members to participate with confidence and safety on MJOC trips.

With a specific focus on Jeep four wheel systems the course includes four wheel driving skills, vehicle control, recovery, convoy and communication as well as many, many tips and tricks rom our experienced instructors and helpers

Standard Jeeps are more than suitable so you do not need to modify your vehicle for this course. In fact you will learn more about your vehicles capabilities and develop better driving skills using an unmodified vehicle.
