Any training available in and around Pretoria

Postby SwannieC » Tue Jul 29, 2014 8:21 am

I have been an offroad enthusiast for many years, and although I consider myself as a good driver, never had any formal training in 4x4. I am in the process of starting to explore 4x4 routes, but thought it would be a wise decision to have some formal training before I venture on any tracks.

I looked around on the forum, but it seems there are only old posts regarding training. Please don't execute me if I didn't find it? :surrender: There are just so many posts and sometimes I seem to get a little bit lost on the site. Persistence will prevail .....

Not in everyone's style, esp if it is your industry, but I agree with Jeepie - Make it known who are the bastards that gives the industry a bad name!

Alternatively, send me your sh1tlist as well, as I would also like to keep away from them!
