History of The 4x4 Center

Mike Hopwood, owner of The 4x4 Center, grew up driving his parents Land Rover on their farm as a kid. He loved that Land Rover and it wasn't long before his passion turned into a career. What started as an affinity for a Land Rover led him to become a 4x4 Mechanic, and an Off-Road Racer! It was 1993 when Mike Hopwood teamed up with Mark, the owner of Rovers North to establish a Vermont Based Driving School that would encompass both of their passions for off-roading and Land Rovers. In 1998, Mike founded The 4x4 Center which was origonally located Marshall Ave in Williston, VT. It didn't take long to out grow our location and in 2004, The 4x4 Center was moved to it's current location on Ethan Allen Dr in South Burlington, VT. Since then, aditional property has been purchased along the Bolton Valley Access Rd that is now home to all The 4x4 Centers Training Programs. Each year additional programs are added based on the needs of our customers. See what's going on, over at the Training Center!
