4x4 Familiarisation

 – Off Road – 

4x4 Familiarisation

Courses for utilities companies preparing for winter, to aid in compliance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER, and to prepare 4×4 operators for driving in snow, ice and flood conditions.

In order to enable fuller compliance with H&S recommendations and PUWER, on-road training and assessment is essential, as the occupational road risk from larger, heavier vehicles which often have a high centre of gravity is increased, especially in emergency and adverse weather or winter conditions.

Where drivers may be required to drive off-road, this course may provide an entry onto the Professional 1 day Off-Road Driving – Experienced Operator course upon meeting the required criteria.


Training is delivered face-to-face by our fully RoSPA certified instructors. Training takes place on your premises using company vehicles and is a mixture of driving theory understanding and practical application. This course is uniquely assured by RoSPA.

Aimed At

This basic 4×4 familiarisation course is aimed at operators of off-road capable vehicles. It is essential for all 4×4 drivers if they are expected to work in adverse weather conditions and rough terrains. Where government or emergency services recommend not to drive, further training may be required.
