Badlands Off-road Adventures provides rough country 4 wheel driving training courses in a variety of standard formats and can customize a course to meet time and content requirements.

The training classes are designed to provide a path for increasing skills and experience. The “Introduction to Off-Road Driving” class is broad and comprehensive. The primary goal of this course is to teach off-road driving skills. The training consists of 4 hours of class room and 4-5 hours the first day behind the wheel. The first 2 hours behind the wheel involve coaching in a highly controlled practice area. This is followed by a mild trail ride to put it all together. The Introductory course on its own is intended for “light duty” users.

Multiday Clinics are offered in both a bundled and unbundled configuration to build on the initial skills to provide additional experience behind-the-wheel picking lines of attack, training on recovery techniques, and specific and unique terrain such as desert, sand dunes and rocks. All multiday clinics incorporate the details and stepwise approach of the “Introduction to Off-Road Driving”.

Custom clinics require the Introduction to Off-Road curriculum to be integrated to the course or as a prerequisite. Customers must provide their own 4WD vehicles.

In business for the past 10 years, Badlands Off-Road Adventures has been providing outstanding 4-Wheel Drive to the Military and to Law Enforcement.

We offer 3 standard courses under our GSA contract GS-07F-225AA and the opportunity to customize them to meet specific needs.
