4x4 Off-Road Training

Four-wheeling brings you FREEDOM!

Ready for Adventure?

Black Rhino Expeditions’s 4×4 Off-Road training program is THE best way to get started in the world of off-roading adventure! We are the only company offering off-road training of this caliber and have made it suitable for ALL makes of 4×4 vehicles – Jeeps, Land Rovers, Toyotas, Fords, Chevrolets, Hummers, Mercedes, etc.

SAFETY IS OUR FIRST CONCERN! Your safety, AND your vehicle’s safety. In all our years of training and leading expeditions, we have never even had to apply a Band-Aid.

Never been off-road before? No Worries.

Our off-road training program is designed with the beginner in mind and we work on the assumption that you know little or nothing about off-roading. You will slowly build your confidence level throughout this exciting day at our favorite off-road training course near Gorman, CA, just 90 minutes north of Los Angeles. Participants will  learn the theoretical AND practical aspects of off-road driving.

What Will I Learn?

Our knowledgeable 4×4 instructors will teach you all about those buttons, dials and levers that you have been curious about, and how you can get the most out of your vehicle, safely and responsibly!

We know that once you become confident in the handling of your vehicle, you will begin to truly enjoy the off-road 4×4 lifestyle. Our training will teach you how to have minimum impact on the environment and a SAFETY-FIRST attitude about your vehicle, allowing you, your friends and your family the opportunity to experience the fun, family-friendly world of off-roading.

Oh, the places you’ll go!
