    Whom would you not go with again?

    Any info appreciated.

    Good question. I guess a basic course would not include anything you haven't done in a 2WD before without the damage. Something like a tag-along tour might be a better place to start after watching a good few of Pat Callinans videos?
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    Have a look at you local facebook groups. There seems to be a good range of 4wd'ers that'll let you come on a run through the bush. Ballarats example is the rednecks: they just had a big run last weekend.

    sounds like they have some fun.... you'd really want some mud tyres or chunky all terrains after all this rain though.

    I know nothing really about offroading myself, I should go along on a run someday.

    I did my 2 day 4WD course at Sandown Raceway on their 4WD course. I think it was Murcotts...?

    Was good fun, all sorts of recovery lessons and general stuff on how not to die in the bush!

    None of the clubs I know offer free training, but most offer some form of subsidy.
    Generally the clubs offer guidance and opportunity to get good advice, not free training.

    Four Wheel Drive Victoria offer training from basic to certified levels: introduction Page
    Basic course generally involves a night of theory and a day of practical.
    Some course run out in the bush, often some of the basic ones run out at the (very good) facility near Werribee: Melbourne 44
