This is your chance to learn off road driving from the professionals who train search & rescue personnel, firefighters, law enforcement, and the military. We are the people who train the personnel at the off road parks in California, including Hollister Hills SVRA. Ask any park ranger, and they will know us!  In your search for training, you may find weekend instructors who offer training through an off road club, but the instructors from The Driving Company are recognized by the State of California (POST) as experts in Off Road Vehicle Operations, and all have been through instructor development training. Our Lead Instructor, Dave Storton, holds a Master's Degree in Adult Education.  The Driving Company has a perfect safety record since we started in 2003.
