What Can I Expect

Exclusive one-to-one tuition puts you in the driving seat of a 4x4 in Canterbury! We are offering one, two or three-hours of personal tuition at this dedicated 4x4 area on the 3000-acre Eastwell Park Estate situated between Canterbury and Ashford.

You'll discover first hand the wealth of surfaces to drive on and in, with chalk, clay, sand, mud runs and even water crossings to test those axles and suspension struts. As well as using the established 'green lane' off road tracks and trails that criss-cross this Kent estate, on these experiences you'll be able to have a go at test circuit.

This off road test circuit has been purpose built and specifically designed to test your nerve and powers of concentration, as you negotiate the steepest banks, ruts, side slopes and more.

As for the tuition, it's top class. Headed up by Guy Tombs, an ex military off road instructor, this official LANTRA centre near Canterbury has been teaching 4x4s skills to recreational users and those who need to drive off roaders in an occupational setting, since 1991.

The modern fleet of motors includes the unbelievably agile Toyota Hilux pick up (with switchable 2WD and 4WD gearboxes) and the iconic Land Rover Discovery. These are the sorts of 4x4 beasts you will driving at this beautiful private Kent venue. Who'd have thought Canterbury could be full of so much driving excitement?

Before you go off in a gnarly 4x4 around the Canterbury countryside, your instructor will take you for a short demo ride. Then it's over to you to try and make mincemeat of the off road challenges ahead. Don't forget, these are private off-roading lessons, so your exclusive one-on-one time will be totally geared towards you.
