We booked a full day some time ago and this was 1 of the 1st available slots after the lockdown. We were extremely lucky to have Kevin knowledgeable and a very personable instructor. Of course, the instructor was in a separate vehicle (distancing rules). For the 1st half of the day we were shown all the functions and capabilities of our own Land Rover Disco 3, in the 2nd half of the day we had the new 110 Defender. Gradually, we learned how to use the off-road functionality, and to tackle increasingly difficult terrain. Kevin is an extremely experienced instructor and it was very informative and entertaining to talk about off-roading, overlanding, the best choice of tyres, equipment, greenlaning and so on. After this experience, we consider booking a recovery course at some point. Of course, we are now more confident to tackle off-road terrain, green lanes in small groups with others.

This was our sons 16th birthday present booked for half term week as a young driver experience. We thought twice about the cost, but decided to go for it.

From beginning to end the whole experience was perfect, lovely lady when I called to ask a question and who met us at reception, was so welcoming and friendly.

The Instructor (Rob?) was amazing, he gave just the right balance of keeping the experience safe whilst still exciting, and totally geared it to our sons ability. I think we were worried it might be 'dumbed down' for a 16 year old, or limited to the field track, but it was really perfect, starting in a field with tracks and obstacles then going out through the woods with narrow steep tracks, water etc.

Beautiful countryside well worth staying a few nights locally! But Im biased there we live in the Blackdown Hills :)

There was no clock watching we were there much more than the hour, and a free video at the end were the icing on the cake, came away feeling it was fantastic value for money and we would recommend to anyone.

Having taken him to another local young driver training place this was actually much better value than driving lessons, teaching you how to deal with slippy conditions and spatial awareness of your vehicle width and how to handle tricky situations calmly. I think we all remember having your first 'moment' alone in a car when it was icy or muddy.

Thank you :)

I cannot recommend this highly enough. The chance to drive a top of the range vehicle is worth every penny. Liz and Will were very welcoming and delightful hosts. Will ensured that my drive was fun and educational in equal measure. A very memorable day!

What a fabulous full day of trying out 3 Land Rovers. We were treated like VIPs by Liz on Reception and Clive, our instructor. We started in “Doris”, a 1952 Land Rover which was quite a challenge to drive but great fun. Then we tried the 110 Defender which was a bit more comfortable for me in the back as I was being thrust around a bit in Doris!

Then onto the Range Rover Autobiography- pure luxury and did everything for us except steer! It was great on the rough terrain and I managed to take some fabulous photos of the vehicle on 3 wheels.

We would highly recommend this experience and Clive, our instructor, was awesome, patient and knowledgeable. A great day out and they do an experience for 11-17 year olds. You can also take your own Land Rover for a truly off road experience.

Amazing Young Off Roader Experience! Our two boys had a fantastic time and their instructor was so friendly and professional. We were greeted with complimentary drinks and a briefing of what they would be doing, including the off roading up in the woods. Session completed with presentation of certificates and video recording. Great experience from start to finish. Special thanks to Clive for making the boys first driving experience so memorable 😀

A great hour of fun with a fantastic teacher who allowed me to demonstrate how fantastic the new defender is. My 10yr old son enjoyed being in the back seat as much as I enjoyed driving. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys 4x4s, oh the centre is state of the art in a beautiful setting!

Absolutely amazing day out, my instructor Clive was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. The terrain was varied and incredibly steep and the defender I drove made it easy. This was my first time off roading and was amazed at the capabilities of such a beautiful machine. Would highly recommend and hope to do this again. Keep an ear out for the location names, you can tell which ones the instructors have messed up on 😆. Good coffee too! Thank you all.

Unbelievable experience, had visited the Halewood factory to see the manufacture of the Evoque and Sean recommended that we try to get Will as our instructor on our booked Land Rover experience.
We managed to get Will who made it easy to understand the operation of the Evoque and the capability and how each of the controls operated. The experience driving off road around the site was fantastic can't stop talking about it. Again thanks to Will for making it a memorably event.

Our land rover experience was amazing. Our instruction (Will) was very knowledgeable and the information he gave us on our Disco Sport was invaluable. The off road course was really good and the setting was lovely. We can't recommend the experience highly enough.

Wow what an experience. Absolutely amazing from start to finish. What a nice people running the place. From gentleman that welcomed us in the carpark to the sweet lady at reception and of course our fabulous instructor Clive. Clive was so much fun. Chatting with him about his life and his stories what great man. The actual experience worth every penny. Clive made us appreciate our car more. His knowledge is great and explained things so normal people can understand. It’s in a great location absolutely beautiful and so well organised. We will be back and going to bring some friends. Thank you all so much for having us and making our day even more perfect. Adam & Eva
