At the SORDC we have a driving range on which we have a vast mixture of purpose built training obstacles together with good natural terrain to give the driver a thoroughly comprehensive 4x4 training experience. We have hair-raising descents and seemingly impossible ascents as well as plenty of very deep water that comes over the bonnet and lots and lots of very sticky mud.
We specialise in off road driving and pride ourselves on having a "real" 4x4 challenge on our hill, it is great fun and requires a fair amount of driver skill. You'll find it hard to stop your adrenaline taking over! The views from the off road course are absolutely stunning, from the top of "Hangmans Hill" we overlook the Howe of Fife and Loch Leven. The driving area is a natural wilderness so there is a wide variety of wildlife to see as well. We are fifteen minutes drive from Perth or Kinross, with the M90 only ten minutes away. The Forth Road Bridge is 30 minutes drive from us, driving within all the speed limits!!
We normally take yourself and a maximum of three guests in your 4x4 if the seating allows, plus the instructor.
We believe in "hands on" teaching. When you arrive we depart straight onto the hill in a vehicle where you will be given a brief five minute demonstration on the basic driving techniques, after that all the driving is down to you . The instructor will start you off with a few manoeuvres to build up your confidence and improve your vehicle handling before gradually increasing the tempo and soon you'll be driving on our most challenging areas. We don't fill the day up with boring classroom lectures or long instructor demos, you do the driving and we'll do the talking !
