With over 20 years of training experience, Jol Fleming and his team are committed to helping you make your outback travel safer. Bush travelling off-highway in Central Australia offers unexpected challenges:  flat tyres, corrugations, sand, large animals, flooding, breakdowns, difficult or no communications.

Our 4WD / AWD training programs give you the necessary skills and confidence to tackle outback roads, to avoid accidents and still have fun.
