LEARN THE BASICS OF SAFE WINTER DRIVING

     Nestled in the heart of the Green Mountains, The 4x4 Training Center of Vermont provides a winter driving experience that will elevate any driver's skill. Challenge yourself and our vehicles on privately plowed roads, trails, a polished ice lane, and ice and snow skid pads. Drivers of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels will build the skills and confidence needed to prepare for, and to navigate, slippery and dangerous winter roads. For roughly the cost of your collision deductible, participants of this course learn a lifetime of skills in one day, that will make them less likely to be involved in an adverse weather related accident. If someone you know has lost confidence due to an accident, this can be a revitalizing experience for them. A few hours with us can completely change your confidence for a lifetime of winter driving.

     Maybe you have a teenage driver and you want the very best learning experience for them? Or, you know someone that's been involved in a winter driving incident that rattled their confidence? Drivers from across the US come to Vermont to dial in and regain their winter driving skills and confidence. If you have been seeking Vermont Winter Driving Lessons or Snow Driving Lessons then this is the class for you. This is the only snow driving class offered locally that takes training to the level we do, and it is designed for drivers of all ages and experience levels. All vehicles, helmets, equipment, and insurances are provided by The 4x4 Training Center. Sign up for a private lesson or come with a group of 20 drivers. The instructors at The 4x4 Training Center are ready to help you enjoy driving in the snow!
