Unimproved/Off-Road Course Page

This course is designed to improve the off-road and unimproved road driving skills of a person with any level of driving experience. Whether you are a young driver wanting to prepare for an emergency situation that might occur in the future, or if you have decades of driving experience and want to enhance your off-road or unimproved road driving skills, this class has something for everyone.

Throughout this course, our highly trained and qualified team of instructors will provide students with a fundamental knowledge of various types of terrain and driving surfaces including things like dirt, gravel, grass, packed clay, rocks, hills, and unexpected turns, as well as steep ascents, descents, and elevation shifts. Our instructors will then demonstrate how to properly maneuver a vehicle over each of these road surfaces before the students get the chance to practice behind the wheel in the hands-on portion of the class, where they put into practice the theories that they have learned in the classroom. Driving technique is incredibly important in off-road and unimproved road driving, because a driver can never know exactly what to expect when facing these types of terrain. Our instructors understand that, and spend time teaching each student tips, tricks, and the proper techniques necessary in successfully navigating these types of road surfaces.

While we can’t plan for everything that you might encounter in an off-road or unimproved road driving situation, we can help prepare you for how to handle the possible obstacles you might face, and how to do so effectively. Throughout this 8-hour course, students can expect to split their time between classroom instruction and hands-on training exercises with our experienced instructors. We believe in the importance of practicing scenarios in a realistic setting by participating in real-time hands-on exercises where the student is in the driver’s seat. Students are always accompanied by an instructor who will coach them through each exercise from the passenger seat.

While in the vehicle with our instructors, students can expect to put into practice the theories that they learned in the classroom, by focusing on several areas that will help improve and enhance their off-road and unimproved road driving skills. These areas include:

  • Maximizing Control on Unimproved Roads (gravel, dirt, grass, packed clay, etc.)
  • Maximizing Maneuverability on Off-Road Terrain
  • Total Vehicle Control
  • How to Avoid Obstacles (holes, ditches, tree stumps, large rocks or boulders, etc.)
  • Extreme Ascent / Descent
  • Extreme Elevation Changes
  • Brake/Throttle Management
  • Vehicle Recovery Methods
  • Vehicle Recovery Tools Instruction

With our combined decades of experience, wealth of knowledge, and unparalleled training, our team of instructors will use their real-world experience to help prepare you for the scenarios you are likely to face when driving off-road or on unimproved roads.

Frequently Asked Questions

How large are the classes?

While several students can be in the classroom at one time, our instructors prefer a 3:1 student – teacher ratio at maximum. This allows the instructor to spend quality time individually with each student, while also allowing the students to witness scenarios being played out first-hand.

Do I need to have my own off-road vehicle to participate in this class?

We will provide the vehicles that will be used during the hands-on training part of the course.

Will this course teach me to avoid accidents while city or country road driving?

This course is designed specifically for off-road and unimproved road driving. However, we do offer an Accident Avoidance course that you might be interested in. We currently offer two Accident Avoidance courses: “Accident Avoidance for Teen Drivers” and “Accident Avoidance for Experienced Drivers.” Please feel free to visit these pages to see if one of these courses might be right for you.

Are there any prerequisites to taking this course?

There are no prerequisites to this course, and no off-road or unimproved road driving experience is necessary. However, we do require students to be at least 18 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license.

I don’t have any off-road driving experience, but I think this course would be fun! Can I still participate?

Absolutely! There is no off-road driving experience necessary for this course. Our team of instructors are experienced in teaching the off-road and unimproved road driving basics to drivers of all experience levels.
