Ever wondered what it’s like to take a Land Rover Discovery off road and find out what it can really do? This rip-roaring off road taster in Dorset offers a fantastic introduction to 4×4 driving. With 25 minutes behind the wheel, there’s plenty of time to put driving skills to the ultimate test. Start proceedings with a briefing before climbing into the Land Rover to get ready for the action. Take turns being passenger and driver and take on a challenging off road course, negotiating a way through lots of different terrains, steep drops, climbs, gullies, sharp twists and turns with a professional instructor in the vehicle at all times to offer tips and encouragement. Are you up for the challenge?
