Fantastic Jimny Day

Thanks to Adam, Ken, Brian, and Adrian, for an amazing training day at Parkley 4WD. We honestly had no idea how capable the wee Jimny is off-road until we did it ourselves, in our own Jimny, despite having watched countless videos and read reviews.
From being very cautious and nervous at the start of the day, we were happily Jimny-scampering up and down serious inclines amongst other things by the end of the day.
We would highly recommend that anyone with a Jimny contact Adam to do this training day. We're still smiling a week later!

4wheel drive training course

As a total novice to 4wheel driving I can honestly say that my confidence in my cars ability has grown 10 fold. I always fancied doing some off roading but to be honest was completely petrified about loosing control of the car and damaging myself and my car. But not any longer. My confidence grew throughout the day and I totally loved it and cannot wait to do more.
Would highly recommended 🤓

This is a must do…….

I thought it would be nice to go out and get some 4WD training so I would know what I was doing rather than just guessing and hoping for the best. After doing the course I’m telling you this is a must do course, it’s Jimny specific and all the training is Jimny based. The instructors are amazing and patient and you build your skills and confidence slowly and steadily. By the end of the day everyone was trying everything and having fun doing it. There were a couple of partners that didn’t even want to drive at the start that ended up driving everything and wanting more. I’m definitely more confident, safer and know what my Jimny can do now. Will definitely be doing a winter one 😎

Confidence building

I signed up for the 4wd driver training day so that I could learn more about what the Jimny could do and in the process I learnt what I could do.
It was fun, educational and I drove places I never would have had the confidence to drive without the support of the instructors.

Great day out

Excellent course gradually building our confidence to take on challenges. I feel much better prepared to handle more challenging real-life outings. It is amazing what the little Jimny can do!
