4x4 Training Courses in the Western Cape.

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good 4x4 training course here in the Western Cape? I've had a look around and there seems to be a couple of good options (4x4 Offroad Academy, Cedarberg 4x4 Training, etc), but I was wondering if any of our community members could refer the rest of us to a good 4x4 training centre in the area.

The ultimate goal would be to secure a DCC ( Driver Competency Certificate) as it would seem that certain Eco-sensitive areas will only be available to drivers who have this certificate in time to come. I'm keen to hear what any of our more experienced 4x4 owners could share with us on this topic.

Cheers

Sounds good, the more the merrier and a great chance to get a group of us together. Lets see if any of our fellow members can recommend a good training course in the area.

Thanks JT, much appreciated. I'm not sure if all of the training courses on offer comply with the standards required for DCC certification though, can we perhaps confirm this before we commit?

Thanks man!

Quite a few courses in and around Gauteng but not sure how many are accredited.

McCarthy Toyota in Pretoria offer a free course to all who buy a 4x4 vehicle from them (new or used) that is great to get you started.

Muhamed, I have done quite a number of grade 4 trails (some felt like 5!)

Any other 4X4 enthusiasts in Gauteng area that would like to join up for some trails in future?
