Beginning in 1993, UFWDA developed curriculum for four wheel drive education clinics, including driver training skills. Throughout the 1990’s UFWDA partnered with Land Rover North America to professionally develop this program and curriculum. Today, the UFWDA 4WD Awareness Program has matured into a relevant and competitively designed driver training program.

Through the UFWDA 4WD Awareness program, UFWDA has trained and introduced thousands of four wheelers, novice and experienced alike, on the components of their 4×4 vehicle, proper off-highway driving techniques, proper vehicle recovery, courtesies related to four wheeling, and environmental awareness by way of the Tread Lightly! philosophy.

UFWDA 4WD Awareness classes are offered as the need arises within four wheel drive clubs or associations or in particular geographical areas. If you are interested in hosting or attending a class, please contact UFWDA at 4WDAwareness (at) or call us at 1-800-448-3932.
