Basic Off Road Driving Techniques Basic Off Road Driving Techniques Many people are under the misapprehension that the 4X4 is a rough and tough vehicle which is indestructible and will take them anywhere, and irrespective of the terrain they will never get stuck, this is so far removed from reality as 4X4’s are just another vehicle which requires driving skills. This section is dedicated to those looking to learn these skills or those contemplating doing some form of off road driving; before proceeding with this section I would advocate any beginner reads the section on how four wheel drive works. 4X4’s can be vulnerable vehicles if a basic understanding of four wheel driving systems is not understood and how and when they should be deployed as considerable and very expensive damage can be done to a vehicle’s transmission, and those of us who have driven 4X4’s have all seen this.
