Update - Covid-19
12th July 2021

4WD Driver Training Courses

Our 4WD training facility is located outside the town of Braidwood in Southern NSW. Under current restrictions due to Covid, no one from the Greater Sydney area can attend for training, once this restriction is eased and persons within the Greater Sydney Area are permitted to travel within NSW then they can attend our training centre.

Persons outside of Greater Sydney, the ACT and other states (pending their own restrictions on travel to and from NSW) can attend training. Vic Widman has been at the training centre since 6 June prior to the current Covid Delta strain outbreak and is therefore able to provide training to you. He is accompanied by senior trainers Wylie McGinnes who lives on site at Braidwood, and Denis Dobie who resides in the ACT, all fit to provide your training. You can join one of our weekend training courses, just book via the booking form on the driver training page. Or you can book a private course at a time that suits you. We currently have several dates available, we are open 7 days per week. To book a private course just email info@4wd.net.au or call 0299131395.
Bookings can be made via our webpage:- 4WD Driver Training Courses

Corporate Training (Accredited Training) is going ahead as per normal for anyone outside of the Greater Sydney area, please refer to our Corporate 4WD Training page on this website or call 0299131395.

During all training you will be required to use our QR code on arrival and wear a mask during your training as required by health regulations, your trainers will do so also.

If you have made a booking or intend to make a booking and Covid regulations change that preclude you from attending the training session or prevents us from presenting the training session, you will receive a full refund of all monies paid. You can also transfer your booking to another date for your training.  

4WD Tagalong Tours

Currently persons from the Greater Sydney Area cannot leave home to attend our tours. If you are affected by this, please contact Jenny at info@4wd.net.au to receive a full refund of any money already paid for your tour or to transfer to another tour date. We are maintaining constant communications with our clients in regard to the quickly changing situation. Please be assured that if you have booked a tour or intend to book a tour with Great Divide Tours that your money is safe and that you will receive a full refund if you cannot attend due to Covid situations or if Great Divide Tours cannot proceed with your tour due to Covid Health regulations.

Border closures for people living in NSW are severely affecting our ability to offer tours outside of NSW at present, we are monitoring the situation daily and will keep you informed of developments if you have booked tour with us. Many of our clients have decided to transfer to our tours in 2022, they are filling fast, please consider this as an option. I currently have one of my guides (Neill Bell) leading our first Arnhem Land tour so he is able to continue to lead tours interstate for me, so if you live outside NSW please look at what we have coming up as we are likely to have vacancies.

If you live in NSW or the ACT but outside of the greater Sydney area you are permitted to travel within NSW, please consider joining one of our tours within NSW, see the calendar of tours for more details. I am developing new tours within NSW at present and will announce these via my Email list, Facebook and website as they come to hand, please consider supporting us during this difficult time.

Covid-19 Advice

Persons attending our tours or training must not attend if they have any cold like symptoms, we will ask each person to complete a declaration form in this respect. Temperature checks will be performed each day at the training centre. Any person that develops cold like symptoms or whose temperature check reveals a raised temperature will be asked to self isolate and not participate any further in the training. If this occurs the person will be advised to call the Covid 19 hotline 1800999880 to arrange a Covid 19 test and place themselves in isolation until they have received their test result.
If this occurs to you during a course or tour you will receive a refund of the balance of the training or tour that you can no longer participate in, this refund will be determined by Vic Widman CEO of Great Divide Tours based on what expense Great Divide Tours has incurred and cannot recoup.
You need to practise appropriate social distancing throughout the training and tour, keeping at least 1.5 metres away from persons other than your immediate family. We have strict numbers in place for the 4wd training centre to ensure we comply with the 4 square metre rule per person.
You should practise proper hygiene by regularly washing your hands, using hand sanitizer after touching any commonly touched objects (especially in public areas) and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.
At the training centre we are providing hand sanitizer for your regular use, on our trips you should provide your own hand sanitizer and use it regularly.
Great Divide Tours has a Covid 19 safety plan and it is available here. 
You are strongly advised to download the Governments CovidSafe app.

Stay safe, Vic Widman
