The Club holds regular driver awareness courses, at Proficiency, Proficiency Plus and Advanced standards. The course leaders are experienced and fully qualified four-wheel drivers with Four Wheel Drive Victoria (FWDV - formerly VAFWDC) accreditation and Australian Competency Standard accreditation.

The moderate fee for these courses includes a copy of the Pajero Four-Wheel Drive Club information material, and upon successful completion, a FWDV certificate presented at the monthly Club meeting.

To be able to do any of these courses, you need to be a Pajero Club member. We welcome anyone who ownes any (roadworthy) 4WD vehicle make and model.
