Off road ERD driving Instructor Training

Emergency Response Driver Training Ltd is a RoSPA accredited training body and all ERDT Courses are accredited by RoSPA.

The RoSPA accredited 4×4 & 6×6 driving Instructor training courses are designed for Emergency Services and organisations that have an operational requirement to drive a 4×4 or 6×6 off a prepared road surface.

The courses are designed to provide the Instructor with the necessary skills required to deliver training and assess, driving a vehicle off road safely and driving a vehicle in floods and adverse weather conditions.

We provide a free on-line study facility which assists the candidate’s pre-course learning and reduces course duration and costs.
