The following established courses are offered in 2018:

  1. Definitely, everyone should learn some basic car maintenance tricks which are really essential to keep a car in working order. Lack of maintenance has negative impacts on the performance of a car. So, abnormal signs which indicate that a car has some mechanical errors shouldn’t be ignored and the reason behind the appearance of such sign needs to be identified and repaired in time. Besides, different types of lubricants used in the vehicle should be inspected regularly and burnt lubricants need to be replaced in time. For more car maintenance tips and tricks, visit

  2. Thanks for that information. I’ve just booked in for the sand-riding course at Rainbow Beach. I’ve previously done a level 1 off-road course and found it very well run.
