    Default land rover experience

    Good day guys/girls,

    I am contemplating doing a 4x4/vehicle recovery course. Basically everything I know, has been learnt watching other people, and sort of teaching myself. Recently i read an article on self taught "bad habits" that do damage to your vehicle, and compromise driver and passenger safety. Of the list of common bad habits listed, I found I was quilty of one or two of those mentioned. Since I have never done a proper 4x4/recovery training course, I would like to do one. After doing a little research, turns out the options available are endless, in terms of what school/course/instructor to use. I turned to Land rover to provide some advise on which course to go for, and they suggested the land rover experience course as a good place to start. Has anyone had any experience with these guys? Are their courses worth it? I would probably be looking at doing the introduction/level one and recovery course over 3-4 days. Anyone care to share their personal experience, it would be greatly appreciated. I am also open to suggestions of other courses/training centres to look at.

    I take it you have a Land Rover?


    I've done the basic course at Gerotek...was well worth it as they show you how to make the best use of the vehicle and it's electronics...

    Rather go to Gerotek...the Kyalami course is not all that impressive

    Hi Guys

    Do any of you know how to get hold of the guys at Land Rover Experience? I've been trying with no luck. Phones and email go unanswered and even Land Rover customer service has not been able to assist. TIA
