Summary
  • "An essential guide to safe and responsible four-wheel driving. Modern four-wheel drive vehicles are powerful and sophisticated machines, able to travel almost anywhere. Given their growing popularity with recreational drivers, there is an even more pressing need for adequate training. Even on sealed roads these vehicles require a different set of driving skills; off-road, the demands are many times greater. This second edition of the bestselling 4WD Driving Skills complements nationally recognised training courses and has been fully revised to include updated vehicle terminology, technology and recovery techniques. It explains the essential skills of four-wheel driving for every type of on- and off-road terrain, how to approach challenging situations, and what to do if things go wrong. It is a valuable reference for all four-wheel drive enthusiasts."-- CSIRO Publishing Website.
