Beyond Driving’s 4×4 familiarisation off-road course is an excellent choice for businesses that require their employees to drive specialist vehicles off-road. This course is specifically designed to provide refresher training to experienced 4×4 operators, covering everything from vehicle knowledge to preparing for winter driving. It is an excellent choice for companies looking to ensure compliance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), which mandate training and assessment for employees who drive larger, heavier vehicles with a high centre of gravity.
4×4 familiarisation course is uniquely assured by RoSPA
At Beyond Driving, we recognise that occupational road risk from larger vehicles is increased, especially in emergency and adverse weather or winter conditions. As such, we believe that on-road training and assessment are essential to ensure fuller compliance with H&S recommendations and PUWER. Our 4×4 familiarisation course is uniquely assured by RoSPA and is delivered face-to-face by our fully certified instructors. The training takes place on your premises using your company vehicles, and is a mixture of driving theory understanding and practical application.
Aimed at operators of off-road capable vehicles
