Start your adventure travels the right way. This one-day hands-on course will give you the fundamental driving skills you need to drive long distance on-road and gravel roads with confidence.  It will prepare you for that long-distance driving, including hazard perception and awareness for those dangers you didn’t know could occur.

This nationally recognised off road training course also includes the comprehensive Getabout Training Long Distance Driving Handbook.

Please note: Some regions/venues have a surcharge so the basic course cost may change depending on location.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Plan long distance driving considering activity, travel duration, passengers and safety equipment
  • Select and load equipment and/or ancillary attachments
  • Identify, address and negotiate potential hazards and risks
  • Identifying, addressing and negotiating environmental issues
  • Operate a vehicle within recommended speed, engine capability and limitations
  • Use vehicle lights and indicators in accordance with traffic regulations
  • Identify and respond appropriately to hazardous and/or emergency driving situations
  • Conduct routine visual inspections to identify faults and carrying out minor maintenance and repairs
  • Identify defective or irregular performance

How it works

Please click here for information on Getabout and Tow-Ed's Response to COVID-19

When you register for the course, we’ll post the Handbook to you. You’ll get plenty of time to read it as prep before your driver training day, and you’ll complete some short written exercises based on your reading.

On the day of your training, bring your vehicle and we’ll review your answers and discuss any questions – then it’s time to get behind the wheel!

We have a maximum instructor-student ratio of 1:6, so you’ll receive personalised training to get the skills you need. 

Further student information, including Terms & Conditions, is available here.
