This Defensive program concentrates on what goes on on-road in primary production. For staff travelling to and from their administration or production sites on a mix of both bitumen and dirt roads, this one-day program addresses the known risks of 4WD/AWD operation on those made surfaces.
From foresters to viticulturists to wheat farmers, more often than not 4WDs constitute the vehicle of choice. Unfortunately 4WDs also represent the vehicle type most often involved in rollover incidents in rural areas. The additional risks of inappropriate speed, driver fatigue, vehicle stability, animal strike, vehicle condition, vehicle separation and more, make this a very difficult mix to manage consistently and safely.
With a well-balanced curriculum of theory using Power Point and practical driving time attendees will learn plenty about journey management and vehicle control, especially in emergency braking and handling situations, with special attention paid to the differences between 2WD and 4WD.
Cost: $375pp (delivered ex-Adelaide). Discounts might apply to group bookings.
Additional: Don’t have access to your own 4WD vehicles? We can hire in late model 4WD vehicles at reasonable rates, you pay a daily rate, plus fuel. P.O.A. Insurance excess may apply. Call.
