Off road training and off road EVOC for law enforcement, firefighters, search & rescue, public utilities, and overlanders !
The Driving Company has trained offroad instructors and personnel from over 150 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. These classes are designed for overlanders, and those new to off road 4x4 driving.
Most courses are at Hollister Hills SVRA, but we also present our Instructor Course in San Diego, and Oceano Dunes SVRA (Pismo Beach). If these locations don't work for you, our team can come to you! We have presented courses at Camp Pendleton, Fort Hunter Liggett, Marine Corp Logistics Base Barstow, Camp Lewis McChord, Casper Wyoming, Los Alamos New Mexico, Oahu, and more. We have been as far as Tajikistan, so travel is no problem!
