Mine Site 4WD training programs are relevant, informative and designed to get your team home safely at the end of every shift.

Training is not only for new comers to the industry and is suited to all drivers.

Experienced drivers will benefit from effective training that reinforces existing skills while adding new knowledge on vehicle systems.

Performance Driving Australia focus on creating drivers who understand the risks associated with driving in these extreme environments.

Drivers benefit from a mixture of theory presentation and practical driving exercises and programs can be delivered on-site or at one of our many locations located around Australia.

Courses are delivered over 1 or 2 days – and typically for groups of 6-20 drivers.


Allowing every driver to experience a range of scenarios in a safe and controlled environment is the key to effective training.
