4x4 off-road training

WE REGRET THESE COURSES ARE NOT AVAILABLE PRESENTLY due to the high prevalence of Covid in the workplace. The nature of this course carries a high risk of spreading infection as it involves most of a day with instructor and participants sharing the enclosed cab space where it isn't possible to maintain a safe distance from each other (23.03.22). We all look forward to the situation improving to a state where these courses can go ahead with minimal risk of infection.

Anyone who particularly wants to train for severe wet ground conditions with a chance of needing to recover the vehicle from muddy conditions, may prefer to consider booking a course during the wet season/s (that may, of course, include the summer months in the UK!).

Price: from £225 per person (+VAT), for a one-day course – includes LANTRA training & assessment

Hush Farms are specialists in off-road 4x4 driving training, delivering LANTRA accredited off-road training courses in Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wales and nationally – meeting HSE regulations for workplace use of 4x4s.  

Out of 42 fatal injuries on UK farms in 2010-11, 15 of them were caused by overturning vehicles or by people being struck by a moving vehicle. 

The legal bit: No matter how experienced you are, the law requires you to have proof of adequate training from a qualified person if you use a 4x4 in the workplace. This legislation applies whether you're a volunteer, employed or self-employed.

We have a network of LANTRA approved 4x4 off-road course sites around the UK, so you can either come to our sites in Devon and Wales for your 4x4 off road training, or we’ll come nearer to you. Our 4x4 driver training can be tailored to your specific needs, for 4x4 drivers of all levels, so can include bespoke elements too – from tackling a steep incline, to manoeuvring in thick mud. 

Our industry experience includes working with public and private sectors, government organisations and wildlife trusts. All of our instructors have lengthy experience of working with 4x4 off-road vehicles, in the toughest of terrains, and are qualified to the professional standards set out by LANTRA and NPTC.
