Performance Driving Australia four wheel drive (4WD) training programs are safe, educational and fun.

Our training programs are designed to create safer drivers who can operate in a variety of terrain away from sealed roads.

We provide 4WD training to many government departments, mining companies, agricultural and corporate groups across Australia.

Experienced four wheel drive trainers will engage with your team to deliver real outcomes, maximising the learning experience while maintaining safety as a priority.


PDA 4WD Training courses are industry recognised and can be delivered at our venues or on-site anywhere in Australia. Training will give you and your team the knowledge and skills to stay safe in challenging work environments.
