Off-Road Academy 4x4 Training

Come and join a complimentary Ford 4x4 training day when you buy a new Ford 4x4, whether it’s the tough RANGER or the capable and versatile EVEREST. Open the door to a new world of 4x4ing and adventure, and experience your new Ford’s mind-blowing capabilities, both on- and off-road.

Once you have taken delivery of your vehicle, your dealer will be in touch with you about your complimentary 4x4 training that comes with the purchase of your vehicle.

At the Ford Off-Road Academy, you will be given a comprehensive introduction to the amazing world of 4x4ing. Whether you are a seasoned or first-time off-roader, this is the ideal opportunity to learn or sharpen your skills at this exciting training day.

Keen to share the experience? You are welcome to bring someone along for an additional fee. Your training co-ordinator will give you all the information you need.


    Our goal is to allow every new Ford 4x4 owner as much time as possible in the seat of your own vehicle whilst navigating the various obstacles, trails and tracks that our facilities have to offer. Each owner will acquire the necessary knowledge about your vehicle’s modern technology as well as the skills to become comfortable and confident with the capabilities of your vehicle.

    We are confident that our Level 1 4x4 training will be an insightful and rewarding experience for both Ford Ranger, Ranger Raptor as well as Ford Everest 4x4 owners.
