Off-Road Experiences and Training at Coniston Off-Road Centre

We’re proud to be independent, and the Centre’s fleet of vehicles reflects this unique position. An unrivalled mix of ‘new’ and ‘old’, Coniston Off-Road is home to everything from the utilitarian Land Rover Defender to the state-of-the-art Mitsubishi L200.

Whether you are coming for one of our Off-Road Experiences, or to undertake off-highway driver training, our course is widely regarded as having some of the best off-road tracks in Britain with over three and a half miles of purpose-built, intensely challenging tracks.

Our course begins in our versatile driver training area, known as Zone 1, complete with short, steep inclines and tricky rock crawls to get you used to the way the vehicle moves and reacts.

Our larger off-road area, so-called Zone 2, was designed and built by Land Rover industry leaders, with terrain and obstacles specifically designed to push vehicles [and their drivers!] to the limits. Here, a lot is asked of the vehicle, with deep water, steep camber slopes, and tall ruts just some of the things you’ll face. There’s even a flight of concrete steps to tackle.

We have welcomed guests and training delegates from all over Great Britain and Europe, and since the Centre is just off the main A65 route between Skipton and Settle in North Yorkshire, there are excellent links in all cardinal directions.
