Before the vehicles are taken off-road, drivers undergo a period of training covering various topics including an understanding of how basic 4-wheel drive systems operate. The courses will provide the opportunity to understand the theory of off-road driving, looking at risk assessment and hazards. Ireland Xtreme @ Macreddin Woods operate a fleet of specially prepared Land Rovers.

Professional Instruction - for companies and semi-state bodies with employees that may be required to drive off-road in the course of their work Both 4x4 owners and non-owners alike will learn that off-roading is more than just a great pastime; in many environments, it is a necessity. It is possible for customers to take anything from a half-day vehicle familiarisation course to a full advanced off-road tuition course. For those not familiar with off-roading, the Familiarisation Course gives participants the chance to taste what these 4x4 vehicles are actually capable of doing, at the hands of an experienced instructor. This course will guide customers to an acceptable but basic standard in off-road driving techniques.

Ireland Xtreme has worked with government agencies, environmental groups and local planning authorities whilst designing the product range. Ireland Xtreme ensures that environmental best practice lies at the heart of all its activities, from the design of the vehicles and by encouraging responsible off-road driving at all levels by making drivers aware of hazardous ground conditions and other risk-related issues. Ireland Xtreme Off-Road courses are carefully managed in a sustainable way to ensure there is no irreparable damage to or erosion of the local landscape. A measure of wear and tear is inevitable in off-road driving, but the courses are maintained as carefully as the vehicles. Repair, regeneration and replanting are continuous processes, ensuring that off-road driving at the centres will be a pleasure for many years to come.
