The Driving Company has trained offroad instructors and personnel from over 100 agencies.  Many, such as Cal Fire, on an ongoing basis. Our instructors are all California POST certified experts in off road EVOC  instruction.  We do not do follow-the-leader training with high instructor to student ratios.  You will get quality, highly interactive instruction.   When the weekenders or tour guides have an emergency, they call the emergency responders who rely on us for their off road training. 

Civilian classes now available.

All Classes are approved and certified by the California Commission on POST - even our civilian courses!

Most courses are at Hollister Hills SVRA, but we will also be presenting in Ocotillo Wells SVRA, and Oceano Dunes SVRA (Pismo Beach) in 2020.  If these locations don't work for you, our team can come to you! We have been as far as Tajikistan, so travel is no problem!
