Riserva Privata San Settimio is proud to present: The Off-road 4×4 School.
Our driving courses are well suited not only to the owners of “old generation” 4×4, as strong and unstoppable off-road as they are awkward and clumsy on asphalt, but also to modern Sports Utility Vehicles which, while sacrificing something in off-road mobility , have conquered large swathes of the market thanks to their safety in every situation, their charm and their undoubted great comfort. Our instructors take into account, during the practical lessons, the skills and characteristics of the various vehicles, allowing students to understand the limits of their vehicle and take into account the modern technology that enables performance and control capabilities unimaginable up until a few years ago..Free quote
The 4×4 School employs qualified instructors assisted by MAURIZIO PIERANTONI, master driver, with many years of experience in driving off-road, organizing important events in Italy and abroad and participating in the Defender Cup, Land Rover Experience, World Cup Tout Terrain , Italian Regular and Masters 4×4 Challenge, as well as numerous trips and pre-scouting.
The courses currently scheduled take place over a weekend, with theoretical lessons in the classroom and practical lessons in a special area devoted to off-road driving. To ensure adequate assistance to all students in learning the techniques of off-road driving, only twenty participants are admitted to each course, ensuring a maximum of four students per instructor.
The theory lectures include the use of audiovisual material of considerable educational validity specially prepared by our qualified teaching Staff and professionally presented using a video projector and laptop.
The practical lessons will be held in a special area that presents the most common obstacles in off-road driving, with obstacles commensurate to the abilities and the vehicles of the students, with wide margins of safety guaranteed by the choice of ground, which, while offering little grip, does, thanks to its physical characteristics, prevents many dangerous situations in case of mishandling by the students.
On the track, in addition to group lessons to illustrate techniques and manoeuvres to overcome obstacles and recover vehicles in difficulty, private lessons with individual students are also provided, to drive their own vehicle, accompanied by our instructor: the student thus learns how to drive their own car, not the school”s vehicle, quickly getting to know its limitations and capabilities and relying on tips and tricks from the instructor who accompanies him and who can better control the level of learning achieved. For a small number of participants, who do not have their own off-road vehicle, it will however be possible to use the School”s 4×4.
The registration fee for each course includes RCT and accident insurance. Certificate and photo at the end of the course; each participant will receive a participation certificate and a souvenir photo taken during the individual practical trials.
Riserva Privata San Settimio is the ideal place for manufacturers of 4×4 to present and test new production models or to carry out customer trials.
The team also arranges customized day or night tours for groups, from country rambles for standard cars up to the roughest trails for owners’ off-road models. For those who do not have their own vehicles.
The team also arranges quad excursions.
It is possible to take part in excursions on board the instructors” vehicles.
